The Chamber often serves as a collective voice for the betterment of the business community. The Governmental Affairs committee is at the forefront of current issues and topics ensuring a prosperous business environment so the community as a whole can thrive. Governmental Affairs not only brings together community leaders from all levels of government but also the Joint Development Authority, Downtown Development Authority, school systems, colleges and universities, non-profit community, Airport Authority, Convention and Visitors Bureau and many other groups and individuals working either in Bartow County or on issues that directly affect Bartow County and our businesses and community.
Meetings are open to anyone in the community. The meetings are generally held the second Monday of each month at 8:00 AM at the Chamber.
