From The Top: Attracting Jobs & Investment to Memphis

This is the second post in a series on Membership ROI. To view the first post in the series click here.

First stop on the Chamber 101 tour is the economic development department. Economic development is the Greater Memphis Chamber’s bread and butter. Bringing jobs and investment to Memphis is our priority and the way we break the cycle of poverty and grow the middle class. Memphis has lost population over the past twenty years and, worse yet, our middle class has shrunk even more. Therefore, all Chamber activities support our goal of growing the middle class through the retention and creation of good jobs. This is the only way our tax base will grow to provide capital for our schools, public safety, infrastructure and an improved quality of life for all.
