The President’s Club, part of the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation, is an exclusive group of upper-level executives. The Foundation is the Chamber’s philanthropic arm designated by the state as an official 501(c)3. The President’s Club is a group of senior-level executives and business owners who are committed to a higher level leadership role in the chamber’s efforts to build a more diverse business foundation for the continued growth and prosperity of the community.

To date, the Foundation has donated more than $95,000 in scholarships to local students, some of whom have returned, post-graduation, to be positive contributors in the region’s workforce. Throughout the year, President’s Club members enjoy exclusive social events at unique locations. View a list of our current President’s Club members.

“I have been a Lee County resident for 45 years and elected to move our office of U.S. Trust to Bonita Springs last year. During my time in Lee County, I have been involved with just about every organization. I met with Christine Ross regarding the Bonita community and decided to join as a member of the Bonita Springs Chamber, as well as the President’s Club. I have found Christine and the Bonita Springs Chamber to be very proactive in all ways. Their staff is very efficient and follow up has been superior. The growth to our area is in Bonita Springs and I feel the Bonita Chamber will help assure that growth is orchestrated well to the best interests of all. I fully recommend the Bonita Springs Area Chamber to all businesses & individuals that want to succeed today and position themselves well in the future.”

“I have been a member of the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce President’s Club for many years. It has provided me the opportunity to meet and get to know many area business leaders, as well as help fulfill my passion for giving back to the community by providing scholarships for area youth. I highly recommend becoming involved with this group.”
