About the Chamber
Here at the Chamber, our mission is to create a thriving culture, making Callaway County a place where people choose to live, while creating and celebrating success. We implement this through five main pillars: delivering value to our members, fostering economic development, advancing business excellence through education, supporting our community’s entrepreneurs, and providing financial sustainability while maximizing operations.
Fulton Area Development Foundation
Fulton Area Development Foundation known as the FADF is a 501 (c)3 organization that focuses on the economic growth of Callaway County. It is also a "sister organization" to the Chamber. The primary functions include nurturing business growth, workforce development, and provide necessary resources to the business community that will assist them in growing their business.
During the year, the FADF is instrumental in holding several events under the Callaway Chamber of Commerce umbrella that include coordinating tours for high school students during “National Manufacturing Day”, workforce development training such as welding and professional development for the business community, Annual Show-Me Innovation Pitch Competition, and College and Career Fair.
The FADF is governed by a volunteer board of directors that is made up of members of the Callaway Chamber of Commerce. Those members include Kim Barnes, President; Janea Danuser, Steve Gibson, Beth Snyder, and Lori Twillman.
