120th Annual Meeting—First Quarter, 2019
The St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting is a celebration of the accomplishments of the past year, recognition of community leaders and a discussion of the vision for the future of the Chamber and our community.
Good Burger Awards
In honor of a former mayor who referred to his citizens as “burgers” (as in St. Petersburgers), the Good ‘Burger Awards were established to honor Chamber members who contribute in a positive way to make our community special.
As St. Petersburgers, we’re always doing something new and different to keep things fresh. In 2018, the Chamber introduced the inaugural Chamber Shuffle – a shuffleboard tournament like no other. Members have the opportunity to sponsor, show their personality, and compete for the coveted “Most Outrageous Sponsor” Award.
Grow Smarter Summit
In 2017, the inaugural Grow Smarter Summit brought our community together to introduce the Grow Smarter Strategy – a transformation movement bringing together leadership from business, government and community to support initiatives for the smart growth of St. Pete – and fuel a community-wide discussion of our city’s plan for the future.
Member Networking Events
New Member Orientation
New Member Orientation is a great way to not only meet the Chamber staff, but also fellow professionals in the community. There’s a great energy in St. Petersburg right now, and the Chamber looks forward to discussing how you can help continue to shape this great city.
Member Appreciation Night
Each month, Member Appreciation Night showcases our members in the hospitality industry while providing an opportunity for members to build personal and professional relationships. Member Appreciation Night will be held at a different location every month to provide opportunities to spotlight our members throughout the St. Pete community.
Our quarterly Now Trending events, sponsored by Shumaker, Loop, and Kendrick, LLP, are a way to gather members for a conversation on trending topics in the community. Our Community Builder, Advisor, Trustee, and Community Leader level members receive two free tickets.
Coffee chats are exclusive opportunities for Chamber members and elected officials to have an informal conversation at a Chamber business in the elected official’s district. Topics range from current events to upcoming policy issues that impact the economic growth and community vitality of St. Petersburg.
Popcorn and Politics
Popcorn & Politics is your opportunity to engage in an informal conversation with candidates running in the Midterm Primary Election. Chamber members are invited to network and learn more about each candidate at Popcorn & Politics before casting their vote.
