About the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce

Who We Are

The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce has been the only chamber of commerce serving Sumter County businesses for over
91 years. Much like Sumter County itself, we have seen many changes and grown substantially over the years from volunteer driven to a director and full-time staff led organization. Through all of our transitions, one thing has remained the same; our commitment to Sumter County businesses. We are committed to the success of every business, to celebrating our diversity, and to doing our part to foster a healthy economic climate.

Support

We all get by with a little help from our friends. The Sumter County Chamber is here to provide the support you need,
