The Bartlett Chamber – Strengthening the Community
The Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce is more than a membership organization it’s about growing the community by creating jobs and attracting capital investment. Its mission is straight forward, “advancing the long-term prosperity of Bartlett and Northeast Shelby County by sustaining and growing its business community”.
Our commitment to sustainable growth and making Bartlett a better place to live, work, play and retire is reflected in every activity we undertake. Whether it’s a membership oriented event such as the Bartlett Business Expo, Annual Chamber Golf Tournament, or Women’s Business Luncheon; creating marketing collateral, facilitating economic development strategies or a one-stop-shop business meeting for a prospective corporate newcomer, it is all aimed at making the community stronger and more prosperous.
Recognizing the contribution that Bartlett Chamber members make to the local community is never overstated. Most citizens recognize the local chamber of commerce as the cheerleader for their community but few realize that the businesses that support their Chamber are exceptional. Bartlett Chamber members are a minority of companies that comprise the local business community. This small group of diverse businesses, from industrial manufacturing and distribution to mom & pop retail establishments, are the true heroes of the business community who give their time, energy and resources to ensure that Bartlett remains viable and holds a future for its children. According to a 2012 study by the Schapiro Group “Consumers believe businesses who are members of a local chamber are more reputable, use good business practices, care about customers, and are more involved in the community”.
The Bartlett Area Chamber, representing over 600 businesses in the Greater Bartlett Area, is committed to making this community the very best it can be and to ensure another 150 years of growth and prosperity.
