Richland County Chamber & Economic Development Announces 2022 Annual Report

In 2022, the Richland Area Chamber & Economic Development and our community worked together to make incredible strides in advancing the local economy. We made it through some tough times, and we came out stronger than ever.

In addition to our ongoing efforts to support businesses and grow jobs, we also took some big steps forward as an organization—like launching our new three-year strategic plan. Our Strategic Priorities – Champion Community Excellence, Cultivate Quality Talent, and Foster Economic Strength – give us a strong focus as we continue to meet the needs of the community.

We also rolled out new mission statements for the Chamber, RCDG and the Chamber Foundation, and a shared vision that “Richland County is a network of thriving communities, businesses, and people working collaboratively to enhance the quality of life for all.” That vision drives everything we do every day!

In 2022 alone:

We added 125 new members! 998 total members now call us home!

Our social audience grew by 20%! We are reaching more people every day with news about what’s happening in our area.

We celebrated 61 ribbon cuttings at new businesses opening up around the county! When you support local business owners, you’re supporting your neighbors.

We are so grateful to our members, our staff, and our board of directors for all their hard work and dedication. The Chamber’s continued success is a direct result of their dedication, innovation, and collaboration. Thank you!

We look forward to an even stronger 2023 with your continued support.
