Letter from the President

Welcome to Bowling Green and the Bowling Green Missouri Chamber of Commerce! We are the wonderful big-little town of Bowling Green, MO!

I was born and raised in this town and other than five years living on the East Coast; I have lived and/or worked in Bowling Green my entire life. I have a passion for our small town living but accept business growth with an overwhelming amount of excitement. This town is a great place to live and raise a family, to work and is an amazing opportunity for those wishing to start up a new business.

The Chamber of Commerce board members share in this excitement as we strive to assist and promote, not on the business community, but the entire Bowling Green community. We work to raise funds through member dues and annual events to help improve our business districts as well as funding  a scholarship to a local graduating high school senior to help the with secondary education costs. We also support and promote our members through our website, social media and our monthly newsletter. Members are able to receive member-to-member discounts and more just by being a member of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce.

We continue to find new ways to bring value to our members memberships and are excited for the exciting things we have planned for the upcoming year. Networking opportunities are one of the largest benefits that members can take advantage of with one of those being our monthly member meeting. Our meetings boast a free lunch, speakers who will present on things happening in our area that are beneficial to the businesses in our area, members have the opportunity to sponsor a meeting and highlight their services as a bonus speaker as well. Our meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at the Bowling Green Community Center at noon. We hope to begin a Business After Hours event for those who are unable to get away from their work to attend the lunch meetings this year as well.

I look forward to working with our dedicated board members to ensure our organization continues to grow to benefit the businesses of Bowling Green. Thank you for visiting our website, our town and our Chamber of Commerce; I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we do!

 

Sincerely,

Tracy Brookshier
