We are proud to announce our newest addition to the Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce website, CAPITAL CITY TODAY, a feature to provide locals with news of Bartow. Feel free to submit articles that promote community pride, because we all are very proud of our City.

In a city like Bartow, where the spirit of community thrives from the support of its residents and the business community, you’ll often find that the local Chamber of Commerce is the center of all the action. The Bartow Chamber carries a long history of organizing and facilitating important community initiatives that contribute positively to the area’s quality of life and its marketability as a place to conduct business. If it goes on in Bartow, chances are you’ll find the Bartow Chamber involved in some way. That’s why it’s important that the Chamber highlight the good news of the community; after all, WE ARE BARTOW.
