Chamber Mission


"Our mission is to enhance the growth and development of business and the quality of life in our community, by helping to keep our membership informed, connected and prosperous."


The Kentland Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1981 to serve the business communities of the Kentland Area. 


The Chamber has a Board of Directors comprised of 9 business representatives and approximately 50 businesses, non-profit and service organizations.  We are here to serve our members through education, promotion and advocacy.  We have a myriad of business events including monthly luncheons, seminars, business by referral and our annual Citizen of the Year Hall of Fame Banquet. 


Our organization prides itself on being fun, energetic and welcoming to all.  Each year, for the benefit of the community and to recognize community involvement.  The Kentland Area Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual Citizen of the Year/Hall of Fame Banquet.  The Chamber sponsors this event in conjunction with The Newton County Enterprise.  This event offers the opportunity for the residents and business community to work together to recognize those individuals making a difference in our community. 


We invite you to come be a part of our dynamic organization.  Contact a Board Member today - we'd love to meet you!
