The Greenwood Chamber of Commerce has been a key active organization in Greenwood and has helped shape the town's history for more than three decades. The Chamber's early existence was very modest and functioned with a handful of active business members.
Despite limited resources and a small number of volunteers, the group always managed to give generously to the community and worked hard to attract new business and industry. In 1968 most of the town's commercial district was destroyed or damaged by a tornado. The Chamber played an important role in the rebuilding and healing of the town.

active in local and state government, sponsors educational programs, hosts
