Our Vision is for the Greater Memphis Area to be globally recognized as an economic leader with global impact that fosters an authentic business environment unique to the soul of our city.
The Greater Memphis Chamber is as old as the Memphis business community and as current as the newest start-up. Since its inception in 1838, the Chamber has marketed Memphis’ unique assets – logistics, musical heritage, pioneering medical community – to the world. From placing the first full-page advertisements selling Memphis as a dynamic place to do business in 1941 to launching the most aggressive economic development initiative in the nation in 2008, the Chamber is the lead economic development agency for the City of Memphis and Shelby County.
Our mission is to drive the Memphis business agenda for Greater Memphis.
