No better time to become a member of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce!

February 21, 2022

February has been an extremely busy and productive month and we still have a week to go.

Our 11th Annual Business Expo was successful with over 75 members showcasing their products and services to over 500 attendees. Last week, we had our Quarterly New Member Showcase where 31 new members had the opportunity to introduce their business, products and services to all the attendees at our Third Wednesday Coffee. In addition, we welcomed 18 new members to our chamber family. We had six ribbon cuttings where our members presented their place of business and made new business connections with their fellow chamber members.

When you become a member of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, you become a part of a dynamic business membership organization with 900 plus like-minded businesses. It is part of our strategic plan to assist in the promotion and marketing of your business within our community. There are a full suite of benefits available to you to place a brighter spotlight on your business throughout Charlotte County. If you are a business and would like to get more information regarding becoming a member of the Charlotte County Chamber, I encourage you to contact the chamber office and speak with Jami Joannes, Director of Business Development or me.
