With roots stretching back to 1919, the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce has served the needs of the business community, and in turn the community at large, in a variety of capacities.
What began as an organization formed to represent the needs of the business community has evolved into a multi-disciplinary membership service organization and sales and public relations agency representing not only Ruston but all of Lincoln Parish.
Your Chamber is the vehicle that pulls together volunteers from all segments of the community with the purpose and intent of making our community the best it can be relative to the business climate, political process and the many facets of that measurement known as “quality of life.” Through its Board of Directors, the Chamber acts as a de facto legislative body for area businesses, adopting policies and resolutions conducive to producing a strong local economy.
Add to the above the realms of business, tourism and relocation information we distribute every day by mail, fax and phone, the seminars held for the benefit of our members, the enormous networking opportunities provided to local businesses and individuals, the months of planning for the Louisiana Peach Festival and the countless times we serve daily as someone’s initial contact with our community, and you begin to see the tip of the iceberg that is your Chamber at work. Multiply this by 90+ years of serving the community and you begin to see the significance of the impact of the Chamber of Commerce.
