Our mission is “To build a positive business environment while enhancing the community’s quality of life.”
Members of the Manatee Chamber of Commerce show a commitment to the community that is second to none. These businesses provide invaluable input on area issues and programs that support businesses and residents of Manatee County and the South Tampa Bay Area. With 46 committees and task forces, there is a wide range of opportunities for individuals to get involved in the area of their choice. And the 830+ member representatives who serve in these groups are the backbone of the Manatee Chamber.
Two offices – one in the heart of Bradenton and the other in Lakewood Ranch – ensure that we are nearby to assist any business. The Service Corp of Retired Executives (SCORE) and the Small Business Development Council (SBDC) hold individual and group workshops designed to help startup businesses succeed. For an appointment to meet with one of these groups at the Manatee Chamber, call 941-748-3411.
