About Us

For more than 76 years, the Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce has been the community's leading advocate and champion for business in the region with a focus on creating a climate of growth and success in our community. The Chamber provides leadership programs and opportunities as well as volunteer programs, networking opportunities and other business-building initiatives that focus on the critical priorities of our community. By leveraging the support, talent and resources of our members, the Bedford Area Chamber is one of the leading organizations helping improve economic vitality and quality of life for everyone.

Business-to-business networking is an ongoing commitment of the Chamber, and as business continues to grow throughout the Town of Bedford, Bedford County and beyond, we continue to develop new and more effective methods of networking. We provide opportunities such as Networking Before Nine; business After Hours; numerous committees and task forces related to government affairs, transportation, workforce development, technology and more; special events like our Summers' End Family Fun Fest, Kegs & Corks, Annual Dinner, Christmas Market and Bedford Business Expo; leads groups in the Bedford, Forest, Lynchburg and Smith Mountain Lake area; and the opportunity to develop and grow new skills through our Leadership Bedford program.

We are very proud to be celebrating 75 years of connecting businesses & strengthening communities. .
