About the Chamber

The Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1982 as a means of bringing the businesses of Cashiers, NC and surrounding mountain communities of Glenville, Lake Toxaway and Sapphire together for the purpose of promoting the area and extending what had traditionally been a seasonal business environment.

The Chamber's Core Purpose is to "Provide extraordinary Leadership in the Cashiers Area as an Advocate for business, Information Source for the community, and Conduit for building destination awareness and responsible growth." We embrace Core Values of Energy & Enthusiasm, Inclusivity, Integrity, Leadership, Hospitality, Preservation of Culture and Commitment to Membership.  By promoting Chamber businesses and leading economic development initiatives throughout the year, the Chamber works to ensure commercial prosperity and high quality of life in our mountain communities.

Every year, the Chamber commits to well-defined strategic initiatives -- including workforce development, housing, pedestrian mobility and safety, broadband connectivity and more -- which align with its Purpose and Values. 

We encourage you to learn more about the work we do. If you're an area or regional business or non-profit organization, we invite you to join us as General or Non-profit members. If you are simply interested in supporting the efforts of the Chamber, you and your family may join as Associate members, or contact us to sign up for our monthly email newsletters!
