About the Pendleton County
Chamber of Commerce

The Pendleton County Chamber of Commerce was incorporated in 2002. Our Chamber was organized for the sole purpose of advancing the general welfare and prosperity of our members and the citizens of Pendleton County, West Virginia.

Our beautiful and historic county is something we love and appreciate. We are committed to seeing our county, and all those who encompass it, thrive for years to come. As a non-profit organization, we work diligently to be the voice and promoter for our members and their respective businesses. We believe in the power of networking and providing information about businesses, recreational opportunities and the endless tourist attractions in our area. 

The Pendleton County Chamber of Commerce helps to plan, organize, advertise, and see special community projects and events come to fruition. We go to all possible and necessary means of promotion and cooperation for the civic, commercial, agricultural, industrial, educational and cultural interests of Pendleton County.  With our Chamber and trustworthy executive committee and elected board of directors, you'll experience honesty and integrity that translates into growth and effective advancement
