Developing People

We pride ourselves on our professional development opportunities and our ability to connect the local business community through personal introductions and gatherings.

We also provide very specific programming, including Leadership Bonita and Impact SWFL that help develop lasting professional relationships and a deep understanding of how this community works.

Connecting Business

Our local business community is unique. That’s why we provide opportunities for all businesses to strategically grow their business in whatever way works best for them.

Whether that means attending networking events, helping with marketing or equipping their workforce to succeed. We want to make sure everyone has the tools they need to make their business thrive.

Promoting Community

We have access to people who care about community issues and have the influence to make an impact.

Some of the projects that our members support are efforts to develop workforce housing and improve local water quality, because our ability to retain and attract talent is directly tied to those issues and the quality of life Southwest Florida has to offer.

National Accreditation

We are the region’s only Five-Star Accredited Chamber, which puts us in the top 1% of Chambers nationwide. This is the highest accreditation level awarded by the U.S. Chamber.

This award defines excellence in chamber planning and recognizes chambers for outstanding contributions toward positive change in their communities.

Important Notice

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed our large gatherings of events and programs through May 31.
Our Visitor Center and The Hub will also be closed during this time.
