Race Beneficiary - Berea Chamber of Commerce -- Working Together For A Better Berea

Our race will benefit the Berea Chamber of Commerce.

The Berea Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, membership driven organization with a rich heritage and has served as a catalyst for community and economic development in Berea and Madison County for nearly six decades.  Founded in 1950 by leaders of Berea’s business community, the Berea Chamber of Commerce, as most fledgling organizations, operated for approximately three decades as a group of community minded volunteers that worked to promote the area, strengthen existing businesses, and create new jobs. More recently, the Chamber has experienced tremendous growth in membership, hired a full-time director and support staff and is now focused on addressing the many challenges associated with being in one of the fastest growing counties in Kentucky.  As the voice of Berea’s business community, we have strength in numbers and are able to speak to the unique needs of business and industry on the local, state and national levels.

Today, we continue our efforts to promote prosperity and enhance the quality of life in the Folk Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky by:

  • Supporting current businesses
  • Encouraging new business development.
  • Enhancing communication and collaboration
  • Promoting Berea as a place to live and work

We look to the future with great hope for our community and are actively seeking opportunities to partner with other organizations having similar goals.  At the same time, we are very much aware of the ever changing global economy, realizing that change is inevitable.
