THE VERMILLION COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Established in 1953, our mission is to promote business development within and around Clinton and outlying communities in Vermillion County.
We are an organization of businesses, industry, professionals, and community groups whose purpose is to promote and enhance the economic growth and well-being of our community, thus improving the quality of life for our residents. The chamber serves as an information hub for local residents and for other communities as well. As people are relocating into the community, we assist them with their inquiries about local businesses and organizations available in the area. The Vermillion County Chamber of Commerce is available to residents, business owners, and visitors of Vermillion County Indiana. It is our duty to welcome new residents and businesses to the area.
Originally known as the Exchange Club, local merchants created a team of networking businesses that served each other as well as the community. In 1953, the Exchange Club was disbanded to make way for the first and only Chamber of Commerce. Serving the southern half of the county, the Clinton Chamber provided more information and support by generating events that would assist in generating local revenue. With the dormancy of the Vermillion County Improvement Association in early 2002, The Clinton Chamber of Commerce assumed the roles and duties of the VCIA, which included issues in the northern half of the county. With no opposition, the Clinton Chamber assumed the name and responsibilities of its new title, The Greater Clinton Chamber of Commerce. In 2017, the chamber board decided to expand the roles and duties even further, and began doing business as the Vermillion County Chamber of Commerce.
