    Recognized in the TOP 1% of chambers nationally, The Newnan-Coweta Chamber is a 69-year old pro-business, advocacy organization serving 900+ members. Boasting an impressive history of strong results, this 5-Star Accredited chamber is one of only 95 chambers nationally to have earned a 5-Star designation. Accreditation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a prestigious honor that distinguishes the high quality, expertise, and strong leadership displayed by accredited state and local chambers of commerce.
