Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce
May 2017 Chamber Chat
Greetings, 

Executive Director, Pablo Diaz said it best and I quote, "You can not have business without community and you can not have community without business."  "The Chamber is the support group for Vicksburg-Warren County."  Our reach extends to our neighboring communities as well but we are here for each other.  Big or small we all have a part to play.

So this is our Call for Action to you!  Are you looking for a voice, a network, exposure for your organization, your business, or for your group? Are you an individual looking for a connection to our community? If your answer was yes, then the Chamber is the place for you.  We want you!  Won't you join us?
