The Metropolis Area Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization working to improve and expand the local business environment and build a better community. Professional men and women have joined together for the purpose of promoting the civic, commercial, economic, and industrial progress of Metropolis and Massac County.
The Chamber is a private, nonprofit taxpaying corporation ran by an elected Board of Directors that voluntarily serve on an unpaid basis. The Board of Directors sets the Chamber’s policies and programs, which are then administered by an Executive Board. Several committees serve as the backbone of the organization, serving to accomplish the Chamber’s goals and objectives.
The Chamber works for your business by encouraging Metropolis and Massac County to grow, expand, and prosper. Our primary goal is to attract new businesses to the community while supporting existing ones, working closely with other agencies and organizations for the betterment of both businesses and the overall community. And because we are a nonprofit corporation, we are able to apply for grant opportunities that may help us achieve our goals for the betterment of our community and local economy.
The Metropolis Chamber of Commerce also serves as a Welcome Center for Massac County and provides information to both our community and visiting tourists. With the help of the City of Metropolis, we host our annual Superman Celebration each June which brings thousands of tourists to our city.
