Our Mission
"The Danville-Boyle County Chamber of Commerce exists to advance the prosperity and well-being of the business community, particularly its members, with a goal of improving the quality of life in this community."

Paula's Ponderings
Hello Chamber Members,
 
We appreciate your support in our work on behalf of the business community. It is through your investment in us and your work on Chamber committees that we progress. If you are interested in joining us, please contact me.

Beyond your membership investment, our budget is built through fundraisers like our Annual Celebration and our Golf Tournament.  This year, we are adding an additional fundraiser - the Chamber Steel Challenge competition, presented by Bluegrass Hearing Clinic.  It will be held the morning of May 6. (Yes, it's Derby Day but you will be done early in the day!)   Get a team together and come have some fun with us while supporting our new fundraiser. Click on the information in the box below for Frequently Asked Questions and the Registration form.

Our third fundraiser for the year, presented by Community Trust Bank, is our Golf Tournament on June 19. We will have a 1 p.m. shotgun start at Old Bridge Golf Course.  We encourage you to bring a team and join in the afternoon fun.  The meal will be provided by Cheddar's Casual Cafe after the tournament concludes.  

Sincerely,
