Why become a Chamber Partner?
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 partnership 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.
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 partners in the region, the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce continues to be one of the most powerful resources available to business owners.
The following opportunities are reserved exclusively for our partners:
Website Business Directory Listing
Our partners also receive a listing in the business directory on our website. This listing includes the business name, address, phone number, email and website links.
Business Card, Brochure, and Pamphlet Display
The Chamber’s office serves as the Welcome Center for the entire Palm Harbor area. Countless residents and visitors come in each year seeking information and referrals. Our lobby contains brochure information and Local Attraction brochures and flyer racks, Palm Harbor Area information, and Palm Harbor & Florida Maps. In this area, the Chamber provides a display for our partners to place their business cards, brochures, and pamphlets.
Some of our many networking events include a monthly Coffee for Commerce, Coffee for Closers, Monthly Chamber Luncheon, Monthly Chamber After Hours Mixer, Annual Dinner Meetings, Community Fund Raising Sponsorships, Ribbon Cuttings and Grand Openings, Chamber Committees & Task Forces, along with numerous special events.
The Chamber receives numerous inquiries each month about local products and services, and will always refer the public first to our partners.
Through a partnership with Pinellas Economic Development and the Palm Harbor Library, our business assistance person will answer your questions and provide valuable information about business plans, licensing, sign ordinances, permitting information, commercial financing options, employment services, specialized training programs, demographics surveys, and more.
