  • Message From the President

  • Welcome to the Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce website and our community. Barnesville-Lamar County is one of the best places in Georgia to live, work and raise a family.

    The Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce understands that to have a stable economic environment, you must have a strong community. We are blessed to have leaders, business owners, educators, and citizens who believe that we all share the responsibility of creating economic success and happiness within our community. It takes a village, and the Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce wants to be your business connection and resource.

    As we all work to recover, the chamber's goal is to work together to improve the quality of life in our community through the support of our members, volunteers, and committees. The Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of commerce is proud to host events throughout the year, such as educator's appreciation, networking opportunities, shop local, Awards Celebration, the Illumination Celebration, Buggy Days Festival, and BBQ & Blues Festival, to name a few. These events benefit our members and our community.

     We will start with Chamber CHAMPS, this group is on the move, and its mission is to support, visit, and encourage our members. Look for the CHAMPS to surprise you soon! We are all trying to rebuild and refocus; the Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce is no exception. It is an honor to work alongside our dedicated board of directors who share the same vision for a healthy community environment and improving our membership experience. As with most things, your involvement is crucial to your rewards to benefit from the chamber.

    If you are not a Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce member, I encourage you to join us today! Your membership will benefit your business and the community. We look forward to you being a part of the journey.

    It has been an honor to serve as the Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce president for the last four years; I look forward to working with you for another successful year. I have a new sense of purpose and passion for our community. 

    Best Regards,

    Melissa Lee
