The mission of the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is to develop, promote and sustain a vital, thriving business climate throughout the community and to initiate, support and enhance the civic, educational and economic well-being of the area.
We have a lot to be excited about at the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce in 2017. Having just completed our strategic plan and hired new leaders, we are busy implementing tools to make your engagement with the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce more valuable than ever. Whether it is a strategic introduction, a targeted event or a leadership development program, we are innovating new ways to support the growth of businesses in our community.
You will notice smaller, immediate changes such as a new themed Sip, Shop and Stroll as well as bigger ones, like plans for a co-working space on the ground floor of the Winter Park Welcome Center. Our big, new goals focus on supporting entrepreneurialism and attracting international visitors and investors. We are committed to delivering the same great core services for members like Leadership Winter Park, the Youth Leaders Program, Taste of Winter Park, the Autumn Art Festival, the Christmas Parade and Winter on the Avenue.
Please join us for our Sip, Shop and Straw Poll on Thursday, March 2, from 5-8 p.m. The evening starts at the Winter Park Welcome Center with a straw poll for the Winter Park City Commission Race and continues along Park Avenue, with stops at participating merchants.
