  • About Us

  • Your Chamber of Commerce is rich with history. In 1911, the Staunton-Augusta County Chamber of Commerce was founded and then in 1922, the Waynesboro-East Augusta Chamber of Commerce was founded. Subsequently, in 1999, they merged to create the Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce. 

    Since 1999, the Greater Augusta Regional Chamber has been serving the communities of Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County. We represent businesses of all type and size from small entrepreneurs to large industrial complexes. The Chamber is a non-governmental organization structured as a non-profit, 501(c) 6. Membership investments are at the core of our operations and go to support an annual program of work that includes advocacy, community, talent development, regional impact projects and all forms of business development and education. Our number one asset is access and our team works with area businesses by facilitating connections to people or solutions that will help them grow and remain profitable, by working with local government and area partners to support business growth, and by serving as a clearinghouse of information to create new opportunities.

    We believe in the strength of our membership and welcome your participation, your ideas, and your energy. 

    It's Your business. It's Your Chamber. It's OUR community!


    The mission of the Greater Augusta Regional Chamber is to strengthen and enhance the local business environment, represent the interests of our members, and foster balanced growth in our region.
