While many organizations battened down the hatches, the Boca Raton Chamber took action. They quickly identified ways to provide value to its members by conducting Zoom networking events, highly informative presentations with key government and area leaders, and continuously provided timely information about closures, how to support restaurants, and now communication about the slow re-opening of business in South Palm Beach County. The Boca Chamber creates value on the regular, but during this pandemic, they have proven their worth ten-fold. Thank you for being the guiding light to keep businesses and the community moving forward, regardless of the headwinds upon us.

“I have really enjoyed and benefited personally and professionally from my membership in the Boca Chamber. The many networking, educational and just plain fun events (virtual and in person) have really grown my contact lists for clients as well as trusted vendors and advisors. It has and continues to be a lot of fun, interesting and beneficial knowing what is going on in our community and having access to community business, civic, state and non-profit leaders that I have met through the Boca Chamber. My return on investment is great and continues to grow and highly recommend the Boca Chamber to all.”

The Boca Chamber is so much more than a meeting space; it is the Heart of our Community. Never has this been more apparent than during this Pandemic. Although we are not able to physically visit the Chamber these days, the Chamber maintains a constant presence and helpful influence, connecting members in new ways that serve to protect local businesses during these extraordinarily difficult times.
- David S. Hollander, Esq., MBA, Law Offices of David S. Hollander, P.A.
My Boca Chamber membership is very meaningful to me because the staff are proactive & responsive. They understand my niche business of Office Tenant Representation, and when fellow Chamber members have issues or need assistance with office space, they know that I’m glad to help – even it it’s not transactional. They think of me as a Resource, and I appreciate that. Also, there is constant quality programming. The entire staff works hard to deliver serious value for members – and it shows. Thank you

The Boca Chamber is an invaluable resource to local business people. With everything they do for us politically, economically, and SO much more! Attending Chamber events is a GREAT way to stay top of mind and nurture relationships with other local business people that I know, and there are always new people to meet as well. It took me a long time to get involved in the Chamber...knowing what I know now...I wish that I would have gotten involved a LONG time ago. You owe it to yourself, your business, and your family to get involved!

- Honored Long Time Chamber Member, Lisa Jensen, FNBCC First National Bank Coastal Community
It's kinda funny, I joined the Chamber to expand my network and help others where I can. It was the Friday before everything came to a grinding halt and the Chamber had to halt all in person events. Over the next 10 days the Chamber went fully virtual; offering trainings, zoom meetings, virtual networking, basically everything the Chamber had to offer all virtually. I immediately felt connected to Chamber members and am so thankful. It has been great and confirmed my decision that joining the Chamber was a wise decision for me personally and professionally.
- David Fleisher, Realtor, Century 21 Stein Posner
I joined the Boca Chamber a year ago and it has been a positive experience for me. The Chamber staff has been a lot of help in growing my business .

I highly recommend the Boca chamber for anyone who wants to grow their business and meet great people.

I have been a part of the Boca Raton Chamber for about three years and I have gone from knowing no one, to knowing a countless number of people (and businesses). Not only do we know each other but there have been many referrals given and received. Every referral I received became a customer. Give the chamber your time and your time will give you great business.
- Scott Rosen, Mass Mutual
I have been a member of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce for the past sixteen years.
I am in a leads group; I am a chamber ambassador and have joined various other committees throughout the years. As an ambassador I have overseen several different areas to promote the chamber. I have attended many, many functions and events held by the chamber including Ribbon Cuttings, Breakfasts, After Hours Networkers, lectures, auctions, training, just to name a few. By joining the chamber and being an active member of the chamber helps you to be a part of the community. To know what is happening around town. When you utilize all the things that the chamber has to offer you make new strong relationships with other members. Through these relationships you are able to network and refer and get business. People like to do business with people they know, like, and trust. You want to grow your business then being part of the chamber and working it will help you to succeed in just that. I have made good friends by being part of the chamber, people that I can call to ask a question and rely upon in many areas. Bounce ideas off of, get advice. Like anything else the chamber is not for everyone but works for a good majority. If you are looking to join an organization with its finger on the pulse, then the
Greater Boca Raton Chamber is for you.

The Boca Chamber is truly my Business Family. The breakfasts each month give me the perfect opportunity to connect with the local business community. The Chamber's Government Affairs Committee and my role on the BLUPAC Board allows me to advocate on behalf of business and plug into both the legislative and political happenings in South Florida, Tallahassee, and Washington, DC. Finally, I love being an instructor with the Chamber's Young Entrepreneur's Academy. Working with middle and high school students to start their own businesses is thrilling and rewarding. The Boca Chamber is where it's at!

I have been an Ambassador for the Boca Chamber of Commerce since 2013 and I was so very honored to receive the 2019 "Ambassador of the Year" Award. Since the Chamber offers a myriad of events and I am in the event business, there is a marvelous synergy in the collaboration of all of the events on my website. I have been pleased with the contacts I've made and the knowledge I've gained, and so proud to be a part of this excellent organization. Deby Goldfarb, Stepping Out Florida-Event Website

I highly recommend joining the Boca Chamber! You won’t regret it.
- Christina Grenga, Schooley Mitchell
Being part of the Boca Chamber has been a great experience. I have represented Frank Gatto & Associates at the Leads 3 Group for over a year and have found the other group members to be knowledgeable in their fields of expertise and helpful to the group members.
Specifically, one member from Champion Auto Leasing sourced a new car for me and handled all of the leasing details including having the car and paperwork brought directly to my office which saved me so much time and relieved me from haggling with salespeople at the dealership.
Another member with Freedom Life assisted me with health insurance and professionally handled all of the details saving me time and money.
Best of all I made some new friends and enjoyed the lunch time meetings and group happy hours.
