Mission Statement

The Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization which serves to foster economic vitality and quality of life in Darlington, Lamar, and Society Hill.  

The new and improved Greater Chamber of Commerce is a valuable resource for businesses, individuals, municipalities, throughout the greater Darlington County.  

The Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce plays an active role in preserving and improving the quality of life of all citizens who reside in Darlington, Lamar, and Society Hill.


Chamber Growth

The Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce encompasses Darlington, Lamar, and Society Hill. While all three municipalities are included under our umbrella, we are determined to better represent and serve Lamar and Society Hill. By visiting each town, community and business leaders, and council meetings more throughout the coming year, we hope to have membership from these towns up by at least 50%.

In addition to growth into the county, we plan to encourage business growth in our community. As businesses become established and join the Chamber, both our community and Chamber grow. Events such as Open House Darlington will aid in this endeavor.

It is important to add value to membership as often as possible. To add value to our Chamber membership, the Chamber upgrade and growth into all areas of Darlington County will be essential. We also plan to offer more accessible information and services, such as an online membership list and event calendar/registration.

As always, our community events offer sponsorship and vending opportunities perfect for marketing and promotion of our current members.
