"Joining the Southeast Volusia Chamber of Commerce was one of the best decisions we made when starting our new business. They are constantly hosting networking events where we were able to mingle with other business owners in our area, helping grow our business quickly. You can get a true sense of community by simply being an active member of the SEV Chamber and we highly recommend any business owner in the area to join." East Coast Current

"When I opened my Allstate Agency doors almost 11 years ago, one of the first things I did was to go and pay my membership to the Southeast Volusia Chamber of Commerce. I was a scratch agent, which means I started with one policy, my own! I knew the importance of becoming an active member of the community, but didn’t know exactly how to start. I grew up in Volusia County, but had moved away for college and lived in Orlando for 10 years prior to coming back home. So I went to my first business after hours in December of 2005 after my agency doors opened to try to get to know some other small business owners, their staff and meet people. I was also visited by Chamber staff shortly after becoming a member and they gave me information on how to get involved with committees within the Chamber. I was called by another member and asked to come to an Ambassador’s lunch and see what their committee had to offer. Instantly I knew I had found a wonderful group of people that welcomes and promotes local businesses. I am still a Chamber Ambassador today!
I went on to chair other committees in the Chamber and became very active in our community. I have been on the SEV Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for 8 years and was the President in 2012. The chamber is a voice of the business community and they work so hard to keep our business community healthy with economic development, legislative work and education for the development of the small business owner and their staff.
More than all of that, the chamber is a wonderful place to meet people and get involved to help make your community great! With the SEV Chamber of Commerce and the support we have given each other over the years, my business is a success. I am a huge believer in their mission!"
