Meet the Chairman & President

 

As Chairman of the Board for the Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce I want to extend a gracious welcome to you and thank you for taking the time to learn more about Gulf Breeze and our growing chamber of commerce. For more than 50 years the City of Gulf Breeze has offered residents and businesses owners with a safe and thriving community to live, work and play.  As a life-long resident and 3rd generation “Breezer” I cannot think of anywhere else in the world that I would rather live, work or raise a family.

As a business community we at the Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce are committed to providing opportunities for economic growth by encouraging partnerships between our member businesses and the community.  We do this by offering numerous occasions for our members and those within the community to connect.  Whether it is through our very active Governmental Affairs Committee, our Annual Community Expo, Taste of Gulf Breeze, Fairways to Freedom Golf Classic, "Networking's a Breeze," or our monthly breakfasts and Business After Hours, there are frequent opportunities throughout the year for you to build lasting connections to other business leaders, government officials and our vibrant community.

One of our most important roles at the Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce is being an advocate for issues that impact our community and businesses. We are dedicated to identifying issues that are important to our members and being a voice for those interests at the local, state and federal level.  Our advocacy also takes the form of being a resource for the community to learn more about matters that impact quality of life as well as our member businesses. Whether it is through events, public forums, open meetings, our website or social media our members and those within the community rely on the Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce to be a key resource for all types of information.

Thank you again for taking the time to learn more about Gulf Breeze and the Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce. I invite you to join our chamber and enjoy a truly rewarding investment in growing your business and building lasting relationships.


To your success,
