The Oconee Chamber of Commerce’s Business Expo is an ideal way to showcase your business and your products/services with an exhibit booth at the event.

A booth at the Oconee Chamber Business Expo will not only provide your business the opportunity to get in front of the local community, but stretches your investment dollars throughout the year with exposure on the Business Expo page of our website, our social media and throug h the printed event program. Your business name will also be listed on our website with a link to your website.
We anticipate this year to be the largest Expo yet. Don’t be left out— Be sure to reserve your space early!

Partner Spotlight
Living Word Academy is a private Christian school that was established in 2012. We are located at 2761 Monroe Hwy in Bogart, Ga. Our mission is to lead children to know and to love God and desire to serve Him by guiding them academically, spiritually, physically and emotionally.

We offer affordable tuition, and we use A Beka, a leader in excellence providing a Bible-based, character- building and academically strong curriculum for over 30 years.

The caring, certified, experienced staff at Living Word Academy partner with parents to build a strong academic future for students. Our school desires to inspire children to learn how the Lord communicates through all subject areas as well as through the arts. We offer children a safe place to discover and to thrive in their God-given abilities and talents.

We invite you to call or email our office to schedule a visit. We would love to talk with you about your child's education and take you on a tour of our facility.
