Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce CEO Cindy Williams joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to share the benefits of joining a local chamber of commerce. Williams joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the Around Atlanta segment.
After completing her undergraduate program at Piedmont University and MBA at Auburn University, Williams entered the chamber industry and has been an active member for the past 15 years. Currently the CEO of the Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce, Williams firmly believes in the chamber’s mission, which is “to serve, promote and add value to the businesses of the community.”
A chamber of commerce assists local businesses through marketing opportunities, including printed and digital materials, to promote the local economy. Members pay an annual fee to receive access to various resources such as networking events to encourage collaboration among local businesses. The Cartersville Chamber also offers educational classes for business owners requiring assistance with critical operational components such as QuickBooks as well as HR and legal courses.
Williams said, “I like for our chamber to really serve the needs of what that businesses want. Our team will really go to work to make that happen.”
The Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce has a long list of services offered, but if a business owner approaches with a specific need, Williams and her team work hard to ensure that need is met.
Initiatives and legislation set forth by the local government support the local business community of Cartersville and Bartow County and a location off I-75 with seven interchanges also affords fantastic local traffic. Tremendous tourism assets attract many visitors and promote a higher quality of life for new citizens and businesses.
“There is a cooperative and collaborative environment in Bartow County that is among the municipalities and local government,” shared Williams. “When you have a core team of people who believe in serving the local business and make the environment right…they are truly pro-business.”
While many are unaware of the purpose of a chamber of commerce, these organizations are the invisible helpers working behind the scenes to create positive work environments for local communities.
