Positive economic growth and community well-being always require long-term strategy, combined with bold approaches and the leadership to make it happen. The 21st-century economy is rich with opportunities for our 808+ square mile Shelby County. The leadership of The Shelby County Chamber has chosen to capitalize on our opportunities by developing a five-year path that builds on the foundation of growing our existing companies while embracing change and expanding our business economy by:

  • Increase quality job growth throughout Shelby County by helping our existing businesses complete in an ever-changing marketplace, and to grow and thrive here.
  • Establish a business-driven workforce readiness approach via a partnership between business, community, our schools and our training providers ensuring Shelby County companies can recruit and retain the employees and managers they need.
  • Operate as a full public-private growth partner with 58 INC., the new countywide economic development organization established to recruit a smart mix of retail, commercial and targeted industrial firms.
  • Serve as the leading voice for our Shelby County business community at all levels of government in order to sustain and enhance a pro-business climate.
