A Chamber Welcome

Greater Florence Chamber President, Mike Miller

The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce is a vital part of the ongoing growth that is taking place here in the Florence County area. Your membership in the Chamber provides unparalleled opportunities to connect with peers, current and prospective clients and partners up and down the supply chain, to keep communication lines open.

Further, the programs and events we present provide extraordinary opportunities to grow needed networks and gain new insights to address the ever-changing challenges facing all of us in business today. By working together as Chamber members, we have a much stronger voice with our elected leaders as they contemplate policy revisions and new rules and regulations that create greater certainty and an improved environment for business in the Pee Dee.

Our body of work ranges from the widely known Leadership Florence Executive Program to the Washington Delegation Trip. We conduct many Small and Minority Business programs including PRISM (Promoting the Inclusion of Small and Minority Businesses,) the Spring Business Outlook Luncheon and the Shop Local Program. We also organize Quarterly Business Seminars and quarterly CEO Breakfasts. In total, there are more than fifty different Chamber programs covering education, leadership development, business growth and networking.

To make all of the programs possible, the Florence Chamber actively recruits local member support at a variety of levels. While many local companies provide supplemental funding at the Capital Foundation and President’s Foundation levels, others provide sponsorship funding for specific platforms. However, our largest supporters are our 600 business members, which are critical to fulfilling our mission.

Our mission is clear:

“Promote and enhance a favorable business climate and improve the quality of life to make Florence…the best community in which to live and operate a business.”
