What People are Saying
“A Great Find”
“I really enjoy the events, especially Business After Five. It fits in with my industry work schedule, and I enjoy the down to earth members very much. Once you meet and interact with our chamber business community you’ll look forward to this gathering.“
Randy Kendrick, Venice Print Center
“Fabulous food & fun atmosphere”
“Network Lunch has been an easy way to get the word out about what I do and for people to know me personally. I have enjoyed the friendships and new business I have gotten from these interactions. “
-Tony Moore, Gulfside Mortgage Services
“Another successful experience”
“Wake Up! Venice is the easiest event for me to attend because of family commitments. It’s ideal because I can get up, meet and greet people, enjoy a good breakfast and feel like I am doing the networking I need to do to retain name recognition I have worked hard for in the last years with members of the core business community who are out there referring people by word of mouth .“
Seth von Marschall,

“Top Notch! Relaxing!”
“The quality of the annual events such as the Golf Tournament at Plantation Golf & Country Club offer a polished format, but are also highly personalized and enjoyable. It’s just a fun event. I never miss it!”
