Vision and Goals

Southwest Virginia’s most welcoming business resource for those who appreciate community.

Since its foundation, countless members have pursued a common mission: to enhance the quality of life for Salem and Roanoke County residents by working to promote business and economic development and represent the interests of Chamber membership. Adding more businesses strengthens this Chamber and further links us to our community.
