Who we are: The Clayton County Chamber of Commerce is a non-partisan membership organization
whose mission is to promote a healthy and productive business climate in Clayton County. We are a convernor
of information and work collaboratively to ensure that Clayton County is the ideal place for people to live, work,
play, and learn!

Why are we here: We exist to promote prosperity and growth for Clayton County.

What we are about: We advocate for the business interest of our members in the areas of 

  • Public Policy
  • Economic Development
  • Business Recruitment, Retention & Expansion 
  • Transportation
  • Education

How we make it happen: We leverage our collective strengths to offer a variety of programs,
services, events, and networking opportunities that help our members grow and sustain successful
businesses in our county. 


Where is Clayton County and why should I invest there? 
We are located 15 minutes south of downtown Atlanta and have the most highly connected location in the
metro Atlanta Region. We have an abundance of available real estate and tax incentive programs that make
investing here highly attractive. 

We take pride in our many community assets:  

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport -- "World's Busiest Passenger Airport"
which has an economic impact of more than $23 billion annually

A robust transportation infrastructure includes: MARTA, access to interstates 75, 85, 285 and 675. 

A nationally recognized and award winning Water Authority 

The Georgia International Convention Center is a world-class venue that is directly linked to the
Airport’s ATL SkyTrain this system makes GICC the only U.S. convention center that is connected
to a major airport. 

Nationally ranked higher education institution (Clayton State University)

Clayton County is home to several national companies such as Clorox, Fresh Express and Toto USA.

Aside from being a great place to live and invest, Clayton County’s communities offer a sense of place and belonging. 
From small town charm with historic downtown districts, to urban shopping centers with lots to see and do--
Clayton County is a place that we are certainly proud to call home.  

While our cities each have a unique character and personality, we all work collectively to make
Clayton County Strong. 
 
Be sure to stay connected to the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce online,
