Historically, all six Burlington business organizations - the Chamber of Commerce, Aldershot BIA, Burlington Economic Development Corporation, Tourism Burlington, Burlington Downtown and the City of Burlington - worked independently to better this community. Recognizing the strong link between business and lifestyle, the creation of Team Burlington represents a strong and unified approach to the economic and community development aspects of the city. Team Burlington enhances each organization's ability to pursue their individual objectives and at the same time provides a more seamless approach to improving business and lifestyle in Burlington. We share a common office and a common idea: to make doing business in Burlington easier and more productive.

BURLINGTON BUSINESS SUMMIT
On June 16, 2011, Team Burlington hosted the 2011 Burlington Business Summit. The event brought together business leaders from across the city in a variety of sectors to talk about recent successes and to formulate opportunities. The focus of the summit was the City of Burlington strategic plan. The primary objective was to give the business community the opportunity to have input into the city's strategic goals and priorities. The event featured presentations by Professor Marvin Ryder and Alan Magi, Executive Director of Corporate Strategic Initiatives. Following the presentations the attendees worked in breakout groups to address opportunities in areas of Prosperity, Environment, Housing, Transportation, Safety, Health, Arts, Culture, Sports & Recreation. Outcomes of the breakout sessions will be available shortly.
