  Welcome to the Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce and Ormond Beach Visitor Center.
Our Chamber has been a driving force in the local economy since its founding in 1945, and as we head into our 74th year, we couldn’t be prouder to serve our Ormond Beach business community. Our mission is to advocate for business, develop leaders and support eco-
nomic growth. Through business involvement, strong partnerships with the City of Ormond Beach, County of
Volusia, the Chamber Alliance as well as the Florida and U.S Chamber of Commerce we have opportunities to create programs that will meet the needs of all types of businesses and grow our future work force.
We continue to work to develop future leaders through our Leadership Program that is in its 16th year and relationships with local organiza- tions like Ormond Mainstreet and local young professional groups. Our Economic Prosperity Hours continue to support economic growth and provide overall connectivity with the business community. Through our newly formed Government Affairs committee, we will work to address key issues that face our members and find ways to advocate on their behalf at a higher level.
The Chamber will focus 2019 on continuing to improve our technology and providing an exceptional member experience. We anticipate earning our state certification in 2019 and will go on to earn our national accreditation in the following years.
Engaged members are the key driver in the Chamber’s success. When members take an active role in the Chamber, they not only build their business, but also make lasting relationships that will last them a life- time. I am a true believer that an active and engaged chamber member will be a successful member with a thriving business for years to come.
It is my privilege to serve as the Chairman of the Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce for 2019. Together, we can face the challenges ahead and create a community we are all proud to live and work in.
