Upcoming Info. & Events

Effingham Chamber of Commerce 

2015-16 Leadership Effingham


Nominations are now being accepted for Leadership Effingham Class of 2015-2016  Leadership Effingham is sponsored by the Effingham Chamber of Commerce and was designed to educate a select group of citizens in all facets of Effingham County.  In return, a trained pool of candidates will be ready for service when a vacancy arises on various boards, collaboratives and committees. Professionals in the areas of county government, hospital administration, public education, taxation, residential and economic development, community service and law enforcement will provide the course content.





The Leadership Effingham class meets once a month on the second Thursday of each month from October—June.  The cost to participate in the class is $150 per participant and each session includes dinner. Starting with last year’s class, the class fee also includes an Associate Membership in the Effingham Chamber. We hope this will be a two-year commitment and that class members will continue their membership in the Chamber. The class requires completion of a group project relating to a current local issue or concern.  To qualify for Leadership Effingham you must be willing to make the commitment to attend at least eight of the ten sessions.  This year’s program will begin on October 8, 2015 and conclude at the Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting in June 2016.  Each session will last approximately three hours, with dinner included.





Nominees will be selected by an impartial committee and notified upon selection.  We encourage you to nominate individual(s) you feel will benefit from this program. Starting this year the Leadership class will be limited to 15 members.

2015 Pack-A-Pack

It’s Back to School time and the Effingham Chamber is planning its annual “Pack-A-Pack” to welcome students back to school. Several needy students in Effingham will receive a back pack filled with supplies that are donated by local businesses and individuals. 

We are asking for your participation in this very important program. Eligible students will be selected by the school to receive this valuable gift. This is a wonderful opportunity to help our local students excel in school by providing them with the necessary supplies and equipment. It is also a way to promote your business to faculty and parents.

If your business does not stock school supplies, please feel free to donate purchased items or gift cards. A list of participating businesses will be included in each bag. If you would like to participate, please complete this form and return prior to Friday, July 31st.
