Our Programs of Work

Four permanent councils, Tourism, Community Development, Membership Services, and Economic Development composed of Chamber Members provide the focus for our Program of Work. These four councils work in concert to achieve our ultimate goal to be the membership organization of choice in Eufaula and Barbour County for businesses, municipal governments, individuals, and nongovernmental organizations seeking to promote quality growth and an exceptional quality of life for Eufaula and Barbour County.


Tourism Council

The Tourism Council Develops programs, services and campaigns that promote Eufaula and Barbour County as a destination for leisure, business and sports travel. Its primary constituent is the local service industry, which is comprised of a number of tangible and intangible components. The tangible elements include transport, foods and beverages, tours, souvenirs and accommodation; while the intangible elements involve education, culture, adventure or simply escape and relaxation. The Tourism Council works to market Eufaula and Barbour County as a destination for tourism, which includes both individual and group travel for historical tourism, eco-tourism and vacationing.
