Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce: FastTrack Award Winner Profile

Kicking off a2Tech360 in September 2020, Ann Arbor SPARK hosted its 22nd annual FastTrack Awards to 19 companies located in Washtenaw and Livingston counties.

FastTrack Awards are presented to companies with consistent and substantial records of growth. Recipients of the 2020 award were required to have revenue of at least $100,000 in 2016, with an average growth of at least 20 percent for the following three years

To continue celebrating these companies, SPARK is highlighting each winner in a blog series.

The Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce (HACC) proudly serves its business members with information, support, and networking opportunities. The organization strives to innovate while providing value and a return on investment to its members. Listening to member’s needs, connecting people, and building strong partnerships and committees is essential to economic impact and growth. Collecting tools and resources has positioned the Chamber as the ultimate resource for its business members.

In the past two years, HACC has pioneered a new community coalition known as Partners in Progress. This collaboration of Hartland Township, Hartland Consolidated Schools, Cromaine District Library, and the Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce has brought effective communication and understanding of our community needs. The four partners are working toward a shared vision of Hartland Living, to inspire a higher quality of life, to attract new businesses and families, and to celebrate what makes Hartland the place to call home.

Another key accomplishment is the Hartland Polo Classic, an event born from a partnership with the Detroit Polo Club. The Hartland Polo Classic blends corporate networking with the excitement of a live polo match while showcasing local food, beer, and wine to create a truly standout event.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the HACC has stepped up and partnered with other chambers and organizations to connect valuable loan and business resources to assist its members through these challenging times.

Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce is one of three Livingston County-based organizations recognized this year with a FastTrack Award. Ann Arbor SPARK, in partnership with the Economic Development Council of Livingston County, works with the Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce to provide economic development services to the region.

This is Hartland Area Chamber of Commerces’s first FastTrack Award.

Watch the Award Celebration! FastTrack Award winners were recognized on Friday, September 18, during a virtual celebration and supported by presenting sponsor Northstar Bank.
