Chamber membership director Kent Dykes said the growth in Powdersville demanded such a service.
"We're trying to make an initiative in Powdersville.There's so much growth and so much opportunity we feel like we can help," he said.
"We want to make it grow, but we want it to grow smartly," Dykes said."We would like to help them coordinate it and bring people together."
He said Powdersville lies on the edges of Greenville, Pickens and Anderson counties, and that leaves them with no central organizing group.He said the Easley Chamber is able to help area business people to get together and network.
"You're sort of in between everyone and no one owns you," he said.

During the recent economic downturn, Dykes was credited for his ability to maintain the organizations stability.
"It's been a pleasure to have served the Easley area as the Chamber President. I can't imagine a better job to have, than to be able to interact with folks in the community and serve as an advocate for the area businesses and industry. Easley has seen steady growth, and it is my hope that the Chamber will continue to play a large role in continued growth. stated Dykes.
Dykes lives in Easley and is heavily involved in numerous community agencies, including the Boy Scouts, Leadership Pickens County, Pickens County Vision 2025, and Sassafras Mountain Improvement.
