The Chamber's Economic Development Office can help you with a variety of resources and services. 

LEADING THE NEW BREED SYMPOSIUM
On Wednesday, June 13, the partners of our regional Economic Development Coalition are hosting "LEADING THE NEW BREED SYMPOSIUM: Motivating Managers, Millennials and Misfits", featuring Phillip Van Hooser, author of Leaders Ought to Know: 11 Ground Rules for Common Sense Leadership. The event will be held at the Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa in Jensen Beach from 7:30am to 2:00pm.

With low unemployment rates throughout the region and state, workforce availability is a hot topic in today's business environment.  This is a very timely issue and should prove to be very interesting, if not entertaining!

Tickets are available for $50 each, through June 4, which includes lunch and a book signing.  We also have sponsorship opportunities, with a huge "Thank You" to FP&L for agreeing to be our Title Sponsor!  Click here to download an informational flyer which includes a rundown of the day's agenda, plus the various levels of sponsorships available.  You can register online, and/or sign up as a sponsor.  We look forward to seeing you at the event!

INDUSTRY APPRECIATION AWARDS PROGRAM
The Chamber’s Industry Appreciation Awards program is an annual event in which we recognize local businesses for what they contribute to our community either through architectural enhancements, success within their industry, or their community involvement. At the 2017 Awards event, we celebrated the success of 18 local companies. We invite you to view a list of those businesses here and their photos.  Congratulations to all the award recipients - we are very proud to honor such tremendous achievements! 

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of our Awards Program! Committee members, who are all Chamber volunteers, may be calling on your company to encourage you to submit a nomination.
