The Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of business and professional men and women who have joined together for the purpose of promoting the civic and commercial progress of our community.
The area’s economic well-being is related directly to the caliber of work that is done by the Chamber. That is why our Chamber has a major impact on business, income and future growth of the area.
There are two primary functions of a chamber of commerce:
The Board of Directors, the policy making body of the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce, represents the business and professional leadership of the community. The Board consists of not less than 15 members; one third are elected each year for a three year term.
The Officers, elected by the Board, serve as the Executive Board and Finance committee & may handle business that occurs between Board meetings.
The President/CEO, the Chief Executive Officer is employed by the Board of Directors as an ex-officio Executive Board Member, and advisor to the president & all committees/task forces. The President/CEO supervises the chamber staff and is responsible for carrying out the chamber’s business programs in accordance with Board policies.
The Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. is financed primarily by the investments of its members. Special projects are also conducted throughout the year such as the Harbor Arts Festival in December, the Citrus Festival in April, and others. The maintenance of an adequate level of support from all business and professional interests in the community is essential to finance the programs that are vital to community growth and development.
Your Chamber of Commerce is your salesperson, your voice and watchdog representing your interest in the political arena, promoting your interests by bringing visitors to our area, welcoming them and encouraging them to return, and providing you the opportunity to network and advertise your business. Support your Chamber of Commerce through membership and participation in the activities. We invite you to join one of our committees or task forces. It is important to all business and professional people, and others because it pays real dividends in the form of more business, better living conditions, and a more attractive and desirable community.
