2017-2018 Chairman
of the Board

Welcome to paradise!  That’s what many Venice locals call our “City on the Gulf” and as Chairman of the Board for the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to our beautiful community.

With an unmatched cultural scene, a vibrant and walkable downtown, and miles of beautiful beaches and bike trails, it is no wonder that Venice is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top destinations to visit, vacation and call home.

For over 90 years, the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce has been promoting business growth and success, while cultivating a vibrant and engaged community. Our Chamber serves as our area’s visitor center, complete with area maps, information about local attractions and events, and a knowledgeable staff. The Chamber also takes pride in advocating for the area’s business community. Our Chamber family includes more than 1,000 member businesses with 2,500 representative members, and our goal is to connect you with people who will help you grow your business and expand your network.

Whether you are looking for a vacation destination, a place to relocate and raise a family, start a thriving business, take your business to new heights, or retire with your toes in the sand, I invite you to explore our community and get involved. You can check out one of the many exciting Chamber and community events through the calendars on our website, venicechamber.com.  

I am excited that you are here, and welcome you to our slice of paradise on the Gulf. Let us know if there is any way we can make your visit more enjoyable.
