Benefits of Chamber Membership

The Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to providing leadership to promote and support economic growth and prosperity while enhancing the quality of life.

Palm Harbor is an unincorporated area, so for over twenty-five years the Chamber has coordinated many of the community-wide events one would normally see presented from their local government. With more than 400 members in the region, the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce continues to be one of the most powerful resources available to business owners.
