Long time Chamber and HONEY TOUR supporter Spokes Bicycles & Service just moved into new digs in uber-bike-friendly Old Town Burleson. Located at 111 S. Wilson Street, Spokes is across the street from the Visitor Center and Vera Calvin Plaza. Join the Spokes crowd for their TUESDAY Night Bike Rides, starting and ending at the shop with the “fast group” taking off at 6:00 PM and the “beginner” ride starting at 6:30 PM. Congratulations, Dave and team, on your “new” Old Town store.
Multiple Choice: Is the BACC Business After Hours: (a) an easy way to connect with others in the business community; (b) an entertaining evening with friends and business associates; (c) a place for food, beverages, door prizes and fun; (d) a free event for ALL BACC members and guests, or (e) ALL OF THE ABOVE.

Today’s event is sponsored by Star Bank and Christian Brothers Automotive. Bring your business cards, a ready handshake for someone new and a Chamber smile!
Want to host a Business After Hours at your location? We are now booking Business After Hours for December and all of 2015. Contact Sherri at the Chamber if you want to know how to bring 50 – 75 people to your business by hosting the Chamber’s monthly BUSINESS AFTER HOURS.
Our new Chamber website is live! Check out our new fully mobile website on your computer, tablet or cell phone. New features include an interactive membership directory, calendar for Chamber and member community events, social media integration, a fantastic new “Visit Burleson” page and more.
Our Home Page features the most current Chamber and community news, new member introductions, and ribbon cuttings.
You’ll find a new interactive member directory, where your listing takes site visitors to a landing page for your business. We’ve already included your business basics on your page. In the next few weeks, we’ll email you a user name and password that allows you to update your landing page with photos, coupons, your logo – whatever best tells your story.
View our two calendars for Chamber and member community events. We will soon migrate to online event registrations and payments, with the exception of a business purchasing 8 or more seats. The Calendar is seamless for you, rolling your RSVP and your payment into one easy transaction. Contact us to inquire about inclusion of your public event on our community calendar.
The Visit Burleson page includes a second directory populated with those Chamber members who fall into one of these four categories: Where to Eat, Where to Shop, Where to Stay and What to Do. We’re looking forward to this being the springboard to tourism and people inquiring about our community.
You will also see pages dedicated to our Chamber benefits and leadership, getting the most of your Chamber membership, the Chamber’s history in our community and more. We look forward to adding a few more sections to the website that we think will bring true value to our members. And, we promise to continually expand our online content and keep you updated with the latest Chamber information.
We’re excited about our new website! We hope you find it to be a useful tool and an asset in promoting your business.
