A Message from the Chairman of the Board

It is a privilege to serve as the Chair for the Greater Pompano Chamber of Commerce, a 68- year- old civic organization. I, along with the board of directors and the chamber team – are here to serve you and your business’ best interest. We want you to realize the Chamber’s potential in creating opportunities, prosperity, accessibility and relationship to grow your business and to represent your needs. Our message: “We’re glad you’re here” is what the Chamber and its members believe in.

The value of your Chamber membership comes in many forms for exposure and business opportunities: Chamber Breakfast and After Hours Networking events, Business Expo, Golf Tournament, Fine Food and Wine, Leadership Programs, CEO Roundtables, The Pineapple Jamboree, and Enterprise Groups, along with the diverse committees that you can serve on. We want to emphasize our main goal: “to buy and shop local” – this is our mission and ultimately what makes Pompano Beach a great community in which to live, work and play.

These are exciting times for our business community. Beach beautification, street and landscaping; and other infrastructure improvement projects are making our city more accommodating for commerce. Many new residential and commercial construction projects are in progress. So, the best way to keep up with all of this development, to stay viable and flourish, is to get involved with the chamber or its different programs and committees.

We will continue our efforts in community and economic development programs and in improving our working relationshing with the City, the CAA, economic and tourism boards and Broward County. We will continue to monitor, influence and lobby pro – business legislation at the local, state and federal levels of government. We will always be the voice of the business community in Pompano Beach. We will continue to be the advocates for managed growth and quality of life. The Chamber’s community education, government affairs and leadership development programs are receiving wonderful reviews and have made a difference in our community. We, as business owners, community leaders, politicians and residents share the same focus and vision: to make our city one of the most desired cities in the county.

We invite you to use our guide as your primary business resource and please consider our members for all of your needs. These businesses have invested in our beautiful and sunny community and deserve your support. I would like to close by using our City’s Message: Florida’s Warmest Welcome, so welcome to the chamber, welcome to our lovely city and enjoy the sunshine!

We look forward to serving you.
