Our Setting

With a population of 60,000, Haywood is the third largest county in western North Carolina. Home to 546 scenic square miles of mountain vistas, fertile river valleys and rolling foothills, the county is within a day’s drive of 50% of the U.S. population. Once known as a summer retreat destination, Haywood is home to a growing economy, unmatched business climate and exceptionally high quality of life, making it an ideal location to live, work and play.

The Chamber

Through advocacy, leadership, innovation and development, the Haywood Chamber of Commerce is a business organization with a vested interest in creating and sustaining a successful economic environment in our community. We achieve this goal by providing the resources necessary for business success, economic vitality and a sustained quality of life in our community. Our Chamber serves the towns of Canton, Clyde, Maggie Valley and Waynesville along with the historic communities that make up greater Haywood County.

Vitality

By facilitating community leadership to create economic prosperity, our Chamber is a thriving network of over 400 businesses in the area who depend on our organization for membership services including networking events, community and business development, marketing and promotion, public policy, and a Visitor Center.

Networking Events

Networking events such as Issues & Eggs, Women in Business luncheons, an Annual Dinner, Holiday Cheer and our four signature events are held throughout the year. Ribbon cuttings, economic data gathering, lead lists, business referrals, relocation and visitor packets, small business seminars, and being an advocate with governmental and regulatory bodies are but a few of the services provided to our members.
