We represent over 2,000 member businesses, providing them with cutting edge products and services designed to help make Knoxville America's Best Business Address®.

Under the direction of the 45 business leaders who make up our Board of Directors, the Chamber's staff is dedicated to the organization's mission of Driving Regional Economic Prosperity. Along with our six regional partners in Innovation Valley, the Chamber offers the following services to our various constituencies (services highlighted in orange are provided through Innovation Valley).
