The Greater Memphis Chamber is as old as the Memphis business community and as current as the newest start-up. Since its inception in 1838, the Chamber has marketed Memphis’ unique assets – logistics, musical heritage, pioneering medical community – to the world. From placing the first full-page advertisements selling Memphis as a dynamic place to do business in 1941 to launching the most aggressive economic development initiative in the nation in 2008, the Chamber is the lead economic development agency for the City of Memphis and Shelby County.
