Chamber of Commerce
Incorporated in April 1979, the Union Area Chamber of Commerce now has more than 325 business, civic, and individual members making it one of the largest chambers in Franklin County.
According to their mission statement, "The Union Area Chamber of Commerce is organized to promote the economic, industrial, professional, educational, cultural and civic welfare of the Union area and to support efforts to constantly improve our community."
Along with organizing ribbon cuttings and business networking activities, the Chamber works throughout the year with the City of Union, Franklin County Government, East Central College, the Union Development Corporation, Scenic Regional Library and other groups to host special projects, luncheons, and training events designed to foster a strong and growing local economy.
Some of the Chamber's popular community activities include:
- Distinguished Service Awards (DSA) Banquet
- Founder's Day 10K Run & 5K Fun Walk
- Annual Chamber BBQ & Long Haul Service Award
- Annual Chamber Golf Outing
- Pub Crawl
- Halloween Boo Bash

Beyond the committees needed to organize and staff those special events, the Chamber's other standing committees include the Ambassadors, Business Development, Education, Fund Raising, Legislative, Membership, and the Past-President's Advisory Council.
