“The folks at MAAG have been a real asset for the Bartlett Area Chamber of Commerce. The assistance they provided with our DRA grant was immeasurable. Without it, I doubt if we could have pulled it off. The staff is passionate about their work and their commitment to making the
Memphis Region a better place is most evident.”
