The Manatee Chamber of Commerce
Business After Business, Business After Hours and Power Lunches are all popular networking events designed to keep its members informed about what's happening in the business community and help bring them together with potential new customers.
The Chamber's Access to Information, Business Resource Center and the Small Business Development Center all connect its members with the resources, people and services they need to move their businesses to the next level.
The Manatee Young Professionals group serves as a business, social and community resource for young professionals. More than 1500 members gather for networking events, hot topic lunches and community service projects. Additionally, the Chamber has a Mentor-Prot'eg'e program to help young professionals get started on the right foot.
To further encourage working together, the Chamber has both Merchant Services and Member-to-Member discount programs.
The Chamber works hard at getting its members the exposure they deserve, with an RFP tool that helps gather leads. The Manatee Chamber of Commerce issues a Preferred Business Directory and provides referrals via phone, Internet and Chamber visits. Its members have full access to its 1000 page website filled with community and business information giving them 24/7 access to tools designed to help businesses succeed. These are just some of the reasons the Manatee Chamber of Commerce is considered to be one of the most dynamic Chamber programs in the U.S. and why they earned the honors of being designated a National Chamber of the Year and Three-time Florida Chamber of the Year.
