The Carthage Area Chamber of Commerce extends a warm welcome to all residents, newcomers, and visitors. Founded in 1921, the organization continually works to help the businesses and people of the community, including and surrounding the villages of Carthage and West Carthage, and the towns of Champion and Wilna. It is the objective of the Chamber to promote civic, economic, and social welfare of the people of Carthage and the surrounding area. Joining the Chamber gains you access to close to 200 local businesses, networking opportunities, the opportunity to showcase your business or organization, as well as making a strong statement of community support. In addition, the Chamber passes on different savings programs and opportunities to all its members as they become available. As the population in the area has so many people coming and going, it is very common for newcomers to the area to immediately research new business through the local chamber and your membership provides you with an on-line membership listing as well as a printed membership directory. The Carthage Area Chamber of Commerce always welcomes new members. You are invited to explore the area by visiting local businesses and organizations, and by talking with the people you see in area businesses and on the streets. As the Carthage Area Chamber, they have compiled a list of members in this directory in hopes to help you engage in all that the area has to offer.
