Welcome to Hazard, KY!

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Hazard/Perry County Chamber of Commerce and to the friendly community of Hazard, Kentucky. Our primary mission is to promote new business and commercial growth as well as the retention and expansion of existing businesses.  While these standards remain today, the Chamber office staff also works with the government of the  City of Hazard and Perry County to promote the common interest of the community in order to enhance the quality of life of the residents. Hazard serves as the center for education, communication and healthcare for the area and surrounding counties.

Our community is a great place to live, raise a family, worship, educate our children and to do business. Hazard offers practically any provider of service that you need. As in most of Eastern Kentucky, the main industry is coal mining, but the city is also focusing now on attracting new industries. Our public school systems provide an excellent education. Hazard Community and Technical College has its main campus in Hazard. Bachelors and Master degree programs are offered through the University Center of the Mountains, located on the Community College campus. The Appalachian Regional Healthcare Medical Center is located in Hazard. The excellent medical staff and health care service providers are equal or above any you would find in larger cities.

It is my pleasure to serve as President of the Hazard-Perry County Chamber of Commerce. Meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month beginning at 8:30am in the City Hall Chambers.  Our executive director is Betsy Clemons. If we can be of any assistance, please give us a call at 606 439-2659 or email at  

We hope you make our town and county a center for all of your needs and business activities.


Janet Smith,
President Hazard Perry County Chamber of Commerce
