The Walton County Chamber of Commerce received it’s Entrepreneur Friendly Designation from the State of Georgia in 2006 and received a grant to put together a Business Resource Center.  This center is located in the Walton County Chamber of Commerce/Development Authority office building and is available for members to use.  There is a small conference table which will seat four that can be reserved by contacting the chamber office.  In addition, we have two book cases of business – related books which members can “check-out”.  The books were donated by the chamber members and cover a wide range of topics.  A complete list of books can be found here
