Chamber Events Overview

We are pleased to serve the 10 municipalities that make up Palm Beach North.

The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce strives to be a dynamic organization that serves as a vital business and community resource. We focus on the development and retention of businesses by taking an active role in issues that affect the profitability of local companies, protecting and improving the quality of life for residents and, above all, providing superior services and resources to our members.

The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization with over 800 business members, and the vast majority of our funding is secured through the private sector. We have evolved into a “knowledge broker,” connecting businesses with prospective clients.

Business is still about relationship building, and understanding this basic principle is the foundation for developing programs, special events and social functions.
