5 Year Strategic Plan | The Rhythm of Commerce - "Turn It Up!"

Positive economic growth and community well-being always requires long-term strategy, combined with bold approaches and the leadership to make it happen.  The 21st century economy is rich with opportunity for the North Alabama region.  The leadership of the Shoals Chamber of Commerce has chosen to capitalize on our opportunities by developing a five-year path that builds on the foundation of existing companies, while embracing change and emerging entrepreneurial spirit and inovation plus targeteting the expanding office building, commercial and retail sectors.  To this end the Chamber is working to build a vibrant business economy by:

  • Promoting Pre-K through 16 workforce skills excellence to meet the existing and future work force skills demanded by business and industry.
  • Helping our existing businesses to not only remain competitive, but to grow and thrive and by recruiting new commercial and retail companies we want and need to strengthen and further diversify the Shoals area business mix.
  • Nurturing an innovation culture that maximizes entrepreneurship and leveragees the music culture that exists in our DNA.
  • Focusing on one-and-one communications with our investors -- identifying and solving issues requiring resolution and ensuring investor ROI.
  • Communicating and promoting the assets of the Shoals region to both internal and external audiences.
To undertake and accomplish these ambitious goals, the Chamber is seeking continued and broadend investment of time, talent, and treasure in the organization.

It is time to make the Shoals region all we can and should be -- Our Future Is Now!
