Mike Reese, Director
The City of Nashville Chamber of Commerce has the responsibility of the economic well-being of our community - to preserve our business system, to promote business growth and development.
It is primarily an organization of business and professional men and women who have joined together to work for the promotion and benefit of our businesses and community. In our community as in every other area, there is a distinct need for an organized group such as the Chamber of Commerce, for there are problems and opportunities which an individual alone cannot possibly solve. By working with others, however, and pooling time and resources; accomplishments can be made.
In brief, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce is an organization through which the volunteer manpower of our community works effectively to make our community a better place in which to live and work.
