This is a crucially important committee that advocates for our members, as well as helps our members thrive through communication. They help guide new members through the onboarding process and answer any questions that could arise. The committee makes phone calls and appointments to check in on businesses, supports members’ events with attendance, and reaches out to new businesses to see what their needs are and to help them join the Chamber!
Women of the Vue
Chair Karen Whelan, Director of Development at Nashville Christian School
Women of the VUE is designed to focus on women in business in the Bellevue and surrounding areas. We have three events a year, and choose to sponsor a charity organization each year to support through these events. Through educational fun networking events, we hope to bring together women of all ages and backgrounds to address issues related to professional development and leadership while creating a robust mentoring and support network that fosters success in both careers and community engagement.
Chair Cole Crocker, Financial Planner/Investment Advisor, Strategic Financial Partners
Sponsorships are a huge part of how we are able to bring events like this to our members and the community at large. The Bellevue Harpeth Chamber presents approximately 20 events each year, providing numerous opportunities for businesses to connect and build relationships with other business professionals in the area.
Sponsorships offer businesses the opportunity to get in front of a specific audience. This form of advertising can solidify your presence in the Bellevue market or start introductions while tapping into a new market. This committee simply ensures that our members are aware of the multiple ways that they can become a sponsor and grow their business!
Chair Heather Warmbrod, Realtor, Wilson Group & President of BHCC

Chair Cole Crocker, Financial Planner, Strategic Financial Partners
