We Are The Chamber

Taking Care of Business

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. The Chamber functions primarily through its members’ investment in the form of annual dues. In return, our members receive added credibility, visibility and marketability. Membership also provides numerous opportunities for our members to promote their businesses to other members, as well as the public.

As a member, you contribute to the ongoing mission of the Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce. Together we create actions and initiatives that are aimed at promoting business and economic development for the benefit of our community.

What makes a community special? What gives it a vibrancy to be unique? There could be many answers, but they would all center around the small, local businesses that help the community flourish. Independently owned small businesses feed the local economy in many ways. Plus, they offer shoppers some truly unique choices for gifts.

Take a moment to check out our local Chamber member businesses and consider stopping in and making a purchase. Not only do these small businesses provide unique options for shopping, services or dining but they also give back of their time, talents and treasures. They employ a large percentage of a city’s workforce and they help keep more money within the local economy than a large corporation. This is why it is so important to support small business every day.
