• Membership Information

    The Chamber of Commerce plays an important role in any area, but in a rural community, the role becomes vital. With political power and resources at the state level slipping further and further away from rural communities, it is increasingly clear that we must take greater responsibility for the future of the Farmville area ourselves. This means teamwork, working as partners with local government, businesses, and citizens to invest our time, talent, and energy in this place that we call home.
