Welcome to the Southeast Volusia Chamber of Commerce!
Established in 1926 with over 2,000 members, the Southeast Volusia Chamber of Commerce remains an active group of working professionals who promote business and economic development for the communities it serves.
The historic Chamber building located at 115 Canal Street, New Smyrna Beach was constructed in 1934 and since then has been through several renovations to reflect the styles of the times. Beginning in 2010, the building underwent complete outside and partial inside restorations with funding from Volusia County ECHO Grant and City of New Smyrna Beach CRA funds to bring the building back to its original 1934 splendor.
The Chamber of Commerce is YOUR business advocate. The Economic Development committee works on your behalf representing our business community on local and state issues. As a group, we can make a considerable impact on the important issues facing our community. We work ON your business while you work IN your business.
Networking is a huge part of growing your business and you’ll have that opportunity at monthly Business After Hours, Weekly Leads Group Meetings, General Membership Luncheons, Business Seminars, by joining committees and more. People buy from people they know, so get to know other businesses in the community through Chamber events and activities.
Additionally, your information will be available to the over 30,000 residents, newcomers and visitors that contact the Chamber each year, for local area information and referrals. You’ll also receive member exclusive advertising opportunities and discount prices at our special events. Contact the Southeast Volusia Chamber office today to find out more about benefits of membership.
