FROM STAFF REPORTS

For the ninth year in a row, The Shelby County Chamber in partnership with the University of Montevallo’s Stephens College of Business, want to give business owners and top managers the chance to share their thoughts and voice their opinion on what Shelby County’s economy will look like for 2024 through its annual “Shelby County Business Outlook Survey”. 

“As we approach the end of 2023, there will be no shortage of predictions and projections on the national and state level regarding a variety of business issues in 2024” April Harry, COO and Member with Warren Averett, LLC, and the Chamber’s 2024 Chair-elect said.  “However, our Chamber also thinks it is vitally important to find out what Shelby County business people think that our own local 2024 business climate will look like.”

The results will be presented in cumulative form during the 2024 Business Outlook Conference scheduled for January 31, 2024.  That event will feature a panel presentation featuring business leaders — representing various business sectors — sharing their outlook on what 2024 will look like in their respective sectors.  

“We encourage all businesses in Shelby County to take roughly ten minutes to complete the Survey developed by the Chamber and Dr. Amiee Mellon, Dean of the Stephens College of Business” Kirk Mancer, President & CEO with The Shelby County Chamber  said.  “The responses will provide important feedback on the business issues affecting Shelby County companies in 2024. All individual responses will be kept confidential, but the overall results will be released and shared in composite so we will all have a better idea of what business people think 2024 will hold for Shelby County.”

Following the panel presentation, Dr. Mellon will provide an overview of Shelby County’s 2024 business outlook by sharing the cumulative results of the “Shelby County Business Outlook Survey”.   

The 2024 Shelby County Business Outlook Survey is available on The Shelby County Chamber’s website Shelbychamber.org, or by calling The Shelby County Chamber at 205-663-4542.
