Smithville has a successful past and will have a successful future - and you can play a role.

Want to take that first step in becoming a part of everything Smithville has to offer? Join the chamber!
The Smithville Area Chamber of Commerce is organized for the following purposes:
To advance the economic, industrial, professional, and civic welfare of the Smithville, Missouri area.
To promote business and community growth and development by promoting economic programs designed to strengthen and expand the income potential of all businesses within the trade area. Promoting programs of a civic, social and cultural nature which are designed to increase the functional and aesthetic values of the community, and discovering and correcting problems which prevent the promotion of business expansion and community growth
To create an informed business and public opinion regarding city, county, state and national legislative and political affairs
To support all activities believed to be beneficial to the community and area, to oppose those which might be detrimental, and in general, to promote the welfare of all area citizens, following always those policies intended to accomplish the greatest good for the greatest number.
The strength of the chamber lies in developing a pool of resources from which to draw ideas, energy and direction, and in doing so, to continue the spirit, enthusiasm and optimism that makes Smithville the place we all call home. In the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
