The West Orange Chamber of Commerce builds partnerships, strong businesses and commitment to the community by serving as the leading business advocate in Central Florida, Facilitating Opportunity to more than 1,000 member businesses. In 2015, 2012 and 2009, the West Orange Chamber of Commerce received the prestigious State of Florida’s Chamber of the Year award.
It’s hard to believe, but we’re already gearing up for another great year at the West Orange Chamber. This year holds extra meaning for us, as 2017 marks our 45th year of facilitating opportunity in the West Orange business community. While we certainly plan to commemorate the many cherished memories, we also have exciting plans for the future to be revealed over the coming months.
To celebrate our success and community champions, we invite members, community leaders and friends to join us on Friday, Feb. 3 at the Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort for The Big Orange Awards. This is our annual formal gala during which we honor many of the best and brightest in our business community from the past year. The recipients are names you will recognize, so join us in celebrating their accomplishments. Our 2016 award winners are:
