Crawfordsville & Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce
About the Chamber

The Chamber Agenda

Since its incorporation on February 18, 1918, the Crawfordsville/Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce has worked to make this community a better place in which to live and conduct business.

In the past year the Chamber has taken the bold actions of endorsing downtown revitalization and countywide planning and zoning. We are proud to have taken a stance on these issues because it is our belief that actions such as downtown revitalization are required to create the economic opportunities desired by us all.

For nearly 95 years our overriding goal has been to make this community a better place to live and conduct business. In order to make this goal a reality we recognize it is sometimes necessary to address tough issues, however the Chamber remains resolute in its determination to create a better tomorrow for our community.
