The Covington – Tipton County Chamber of Commerce was chartered on October 10th in 1957.
We are a non-profit organization, run by two staff members and a 23 member volunteer Board of Directors that exist to Promote and Support the Covington-Tipton County Area Communities and West TN Lifestyle.
We accomplish this by:
