The Chattanooga Chamber's 12 area councils are the backbone of the chamber's volunteer presence. The Councils support businesses in specific geographic areas within Hamilton County, providing opportunities for chamber members to get involved in solving problems, discussing issues and supporting events and civic projects that benefit businesses, schools and other constituencies within the council's footprint.

At monthly meetings, members enjoy networking opportunities and stimulating speakers.

Each council serves the unique needs of its members with its own board, strategic plan, annual budget, programs and initiatives.
