About the Chamber

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.

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.

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.
