Established in 1933, the Chamber of Commerce of Harrison County is a 501 (c) 6, not-for-profit membership organization committed to making Harrison County, Indiana the best place in the Southern Indiana Region to live, work and play.
The volunteer Board of Directors is made up from the membership and one appointment each from the Town of Corydon, Harrison County Commissioners, Harrison County Council, school corporation representative and the Harrison County Economic Development Corporation, and oversees the operations of the Chamber. Through a strategic planning process the leadership develops a mission, vision and strategic initiatives to guide the Chamber’s activities and programs. Working with the board of directors, the staff drives the actions of the Chamber and carries out the framework created by the membership and leadership.
To keep the membership informed, the Chamber offers a variety of communication and publications, just one of the many member benefits we offer. A full review of the benefits of Chamber membership and an application for membership may be viewed here.
