The Kennett Chamber of Commerce is organized for the purpose of developing, promoting and protecting the commercial, industrial, professional, agricultural and civic interests of the city and its surrounding area. Our goal is to build healthy economics and improve the quality of life in our regional communities.
The Chamber promotes business and city growth by providing leadership, advocacy, tools and resources for business success and expansion. Strengthening the community, networking with other business people and gleaning information are a few reasons to become a Chamber member.
