Mission

It is the “business” of the Petersburg Chamber of Commerce to do our best to promote issues and activities, which meet our members and community’s needs, through the collective efforts of our members.

  • Chamber members (businesses, organizations and individuals) work to make the Petersburg area a place where the quality of life is influenced by our small town charm.
     

  • Sharing information: Keep our members informed of issues that can affect their business interests.
     

  • Collaboration: Identify and recruit local organizations that share the Chamber’s vision for a vibrant business environment, develop common goals and actively pursue them.
     

  • Business to Business Promotions: Provide our membership with opportunities to promote their business to other members.
     

  • Business to Public Promotions: Provide our membership with opportunities to promote their business to the public.
