Hub Chamber Council

The Georgia Chamber’s Hub Chamber Council advocates for the unique needs of 11 metropolitan communities across Georgia.

Hub Chamber Initiatives

The Hub Chamber Council engages in strategic initiatives and advocacy to support the economic prosperity of regional job hubs outside of Metro Atlanta. 

Business & Community

Hub communities are experiencing exceptional levels of population growth and economic development. Our Hub Chambers of Commerce continue to act as regional drivers, coalescing strategic partners and providing a table for critical conversations.


The Hub Council seeks to continue to act as a partner to statewide leadership and to advocate for our business communities across the state on unique issues that affect our mid-size metropolitan areas.

Regional Hubs

Hub communities act as major regional hubs in the state supporting Georgia’s ports, largest hospitals outside of metro Atlanta, a substantial portion of our state's higher education and technical institutions, and nearly all of the state's defense installations.
