The Snellville Commerce Club was established in 1984. Our monthly meetings regularly include professionals and merchants from the Snellville area. We are seeking new members who would like to benefit their businesses by becoming part of a community-based organization.

In 2011, the Commerce Club became the official business marketing organization of Snellville Tourism & Trade, the city’s Destination Marketing Organization.


Our purpose is to establish and promote programs that strengthen the ties among members, their respective businesses, and the community. The Snellville Commerce Club has been successful in supporting its membership through informed speakers and social gatherings in pursuit of excellence in business and civic education. The Snellville Commerce Club is involved in philanthropy with non-profit organizations to improve the area where we work and live.
