Mission

The Arlington Council's mission is to help Arlington flourish by supporting our community, businesses & schools. 

What are the Jax Chamber Councils? 

We are one of ten Chamber Councils have served the greater Jacksonville area for more than 50 years. Each Council provides unique programs and activities to promote and improve the business and civic climates of their geographic areas. Any employee of a company that is a member in good standing of the Chamber is eligible for membership in one or more Chamber Councils.

Jon Hart - Hart SEO

Our mission is to help businesses get ahead of their competition whether that is literally on Google search or with creating a more modern more advanced website. Over our 4 years in business we have helped hundreds of companies do exactly that! We are passionate with helping smaller/ newer businesses compete with their larger/ more established competition. The Jax Chamber has been incredibly helpful in Hart SEO's success and we highly recommend joining and getting involved to all of the new businesses we work with.

    Teacher Appreciation Breakfast

    Every year we turn one of our breakfasts into an amazing Teacher's Appreciation event. We recognize the five local Arlington schools, their Principals and their Teachers of the Year. We present to them school supplies and paper that we have collected over the past year and a special gift basket from our Arlington Council members.
