• The Tavares Chamber of Commerce is an economic development engine. Our mission is to advocate on behalf of businesses in Tavares and throughout Lake County creating greater opportunity for all.

  • Committees

  • Ambassadors/Volunteers Committee:

                  We depend on our amazing Ambassadors/Volunteers to succeed. Chamber Ambassadors are selected for a year and serve at regular functions and events as hospitality ambassadors of the Chamber. They also help with set-up and tear-down of some events and volunteer at many special events. Every special event needs a strong group of volunteers who can help in the office, sell tickets, work the event or help prepare for it.


    Business Development:

                  Everyone deserves a voice. This new committee is set up to be sure that all geographical areas of our community are represented. We are also asking liaisons from different industries to be involved with our Chamber. This committee works in partnership with the Membership Committee.


    Education Committee:

                  Education is the Silver Bullet and this committee is focused on that. They work in partnership with the Tavares schools to help further community involvement in the local schools. This committee may be involved with recruiting volunteers for the schools, helping with fundraisers and increasing awareness about how important education is to the business community.


    Legislative & Economic Development:

                  Having great communication and relationships throughout the county is vital. This is a bipartisan group of business, legal and community leaders committed to enhancing the Chamber’s and Lake County’s reputation as a pro-business area.


    Membership Committee:

                  The Chamber is a MEMBER based organization – grow the members and we all grow. This committee is focused on retaining and recruiting new members to the Chamber. They also work on the membership directory and other printed materials, such as the Tavares Tourism Guide. Committee members should be able frequent attendees to the networking and monthly functions and help make staff and board aware of new businesses in the community.


    Special Events:

                  Everyone Loves A Party! Throughout the year the Chamber presents or participates in various special events. This committee helps to produce those events by being involved in all stages of the event, planning, organizing, staffing and designing. The Chamber special events include: Golf Tournament, Business of the Year Gala, Taste of Tavares Business Expo; 4th of July Kid’s Zone and many more. Not every member has to do every event, sub-committees are established for the year.
