Wake Up, Pierce!
Community Updates

Our first Wake Up, Pierce! was a big success! Chamber members heard community updates from the Pierce County Chamber, Georgia House of Representatives/Chad Nimmer, PC School System/LaVance Gay, Team 25/Brian Fey, the City of Blackshear's Main Street Program/Tommy Lowmon, City of Blackshear/Jerry Hollis, Blackshear Police Department/Chris Wright, PC Economic Development Authority/Matt Carter, and the Pierce County Board of Commissioners/Paul Christian. We have some exciting opportunities and challenges coming our way, Pierce County. Let's be ready! We hope to see YOU at the next Wake Up, Pierce!  

Georgia Chamber Federation
New Member Service

Small business is the driving force of jobs in Georgia and is part of the core constituency of the Georgia Chamber's grassroots efforts. Our overall success in the global marketplace is directly tied to the state's ability to foster a climate favorable to small business - a sector that makes up almost 98% of registered Georgia companies.


The Georgia Chamber has introduced the Georgia Chamber Federation, and we have joined this alliance to ensure the voice of our small business sector is heard with minimal investment and maximum impact. Through the Georgia Chamber Federation, any business with 10 or fewer full time employees who is a member of the Pierce County Chamber of Commerce will receive free membership into the Georgia Chamber of Commerce - a $500 value to you. Through our participation in the Federation, our members have increased influence in the state legislature and access to timely information, resources and opportunities. This partnership aims to empower small businesses and grow the voice of business at the local, state and federal levels. Be on the lookout for more information and email updates.
