Throughout its over 55 year history, the Winnsboro – Franklin Parish Chamber of Commerce has played an important role in the growth and development of Winnsboro and Franklin Parish. The Chamber boasts a broad cross-section of members from throughout the parish and, though that membership, has helped forge a better understanding and appreciation of the importance of local business.
The Chamber’s monthly membership meetings – held at noon on the first Thursday of every month – provide important insight into local, state, and national issues by way of informative presentations by knowledgeable and respected speakers. Subjects such as job training programs, tax issues, and upcoming state and national legislation are just a few of the topics that have been discussed at recent Chamber meetings, and more timely topics are planned for the future.
