The holidays are upon us, and there’s no better time to join the Chamber!

The Bedford County Chamber of Commerce has been proud to work with and for the business community of the Bedford County region for decades, but especially through the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been inspired by the way our business community has stood BEDFORD COUNTY STRONG, supporting one another by shopping local, ordering take-out, recognizing health care and other essential workers, and by participating in amazing cooperative efforts like the Silver Lining Drive-In and the Holiday Nights of Lights projects.

The Chamber has played a pivotal role throughout the pandemic, compiling and distributing vital information to the business community on topics including the waiver process, unemployment compensation, CDC and Department of Health guidelines, reopening resources, and much more.

We sincerely thank our federal and state legislators for providing updates to local businesses through the Chamber’s online town halls and Government: It’s Your Business forums, and for providing accurate and timely information to pass along to local businesses.  We continue to work closely with government officials share your concerns and to provide you with as many resources as possible to help your business and our community survive and thrive.

Despite the many challenges of 2020-2021 there has also been much to celebrate.  The Chamber has planned more than 50 ribbon cuttings and business anniversary ceremonies, including the welcoming of many new small businesses to our region.

We have showcased hundreds of businesses, organizations and individuals for their good works through our YouTube channel and The Vibe online video segments, and we presented our Annual Dinner and Awards Celebration, recognizing and honoring wonderful representatives of our action-oriented business community.

Through the Bedford County Chamber (Education) Foundation, we continue to forge connections between the business community and area students, laying the foundation for the future of our workforce, including the tenants  of servant leadership.

We thank our members for your continued support, and we welcome new members to learn more about the Chamber and the many ways to join in our ongoing efforts to make our region the best place possible to live, work, play and prosper.
