Member Testimonials

"When I first started as a self-employed insurance agent, it was suggested to me that I join the Chamber. Believe me, joining the Chamber was the best business decision I have made in my 17-year career. I remain active and involved because no other organization offers the opportunity to have personal contact with business owners, employees and individuals. Joining the Chamber not only gets you started in a positive direction, but it also helps you grow as a business owner in more ways than you can imagine.”

Sharon Hall, Aflac Insurance

"I joined the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce in 2012 to meet business owners in our community and contribute to the ongoing growth in Dawsonville. As a small business owner, I have benefited greatly through networking events, the Ambassador program, newsletters and social media connections. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to build relationships with members and help meet their needs in any way I can. Being a member is a rewarding experience both emotionally and financially and I look forward to many years of continued growth."

Cathy Holcombe, Juice Plus Wellness Coach

The Dawson County Chamber has impacted my business in a positive way since becoming a member. The networking has been superb. Almost immediately I procured a job from meeting another member at an after hours event. I have exchanged many cards and look forward to an ongoing relationship with Dawson Chamber members. ~ Joe Baresford, Baresford Handiman Services

Being a Chamber member has allowed me to feel as part of the community, not just a resident. I have been able to help others, give to others, and grow as a leader. It has given me more exposure to the community and the opportunity to meet other business owners and individuals I would not have otherwise met. ~ Ryan Scott, State Farm Insurance

When I decided to take the leap of faith and get my real estate license, my first organization to join was the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce. I was embraced and supported by them. he networking programs with the Chamber expanded my knowledge of our county and allowed me to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs. We are blessed with one of the best Chambers in the state of Georgia. ~ Karmen Pharris, Palmer House Properties

The Chamber has been and integral part of my becoming recognized in Dawsonville. Their functions are wonderful get-togethers with people I've come to know and love. I'm so thankful to the Chamber for all they do for large and small businesses alike. ~ Sue Gantick, Salt Med Spa
