The Waynesville/St. Robert Chamber is actively seeking businesses to become part of our community. We believe our community assets are what prospective residents are seeking when looking for a new place to call home. Community pride continues to grow as we develop and encourage new growth for our area.
Our mission statement reads that "we are to be a motivating force in coordinating, leading, and promoting existing and future business development, economic diversity, and tourism. We will enhance the quality of life through programs, services, community development, recognition and pride." Our chamber carries out this mission in a variety of ways. We stay active with other community entities to keep abreast of changes and to express the business community's view on certain issues. We moved our office to a more visible location where we can become a true tourism center to encourage visitors to explore our area.
Chamber members gather at informative luncheons, dinner socials and fund-raising activities. Annual events include the Citizen of the Year Banquet, Community Leadership Breakfast, golf tournaments, Annual Basket Auction, Military Appreciation Week, June election social, fall football tailgate party, and Christmas on the Square.
Each spring the Kathleen Parker Memorial Scholarship is presented to a graduating Waynesville High School senior. The recipient is judged by his or her cumulative GPA for seven semesters, ACT or SAT composite scores, curriculum, financial need, and extra-curricular and work activities. The Chamber encourages new community leaders by offering this scholarship.
Membership in the Chamber of Commerce is open to any reputable person, business, association or civic club, and currently stands at 355 members. Dues are based upon size and type of business and number of employees. Membership is evidence of community commitment and support for the Chamber's goals and is a great way to help make a positive difference in our community.
