LOTS OF RECENT TRIUMPHS FOR THE CHAMBER
 
Over the past few weeks, the West Orange Chamber has celebrated quite a few accomplishments that I would like to share with you:
  • The Chamber recently added another distinguished Member to our illustrious list of Trustees. Physician Associates, a part of the Orlando Health family, became a Supporting Trustee. This large organization, with over 90 Physicians across Orange County, chose to join as a Supporting Trustee for the increased brand exposure, access to key business and political leaders and the host of benefits and services that yield a high return on investment.
  • The Chamber's annual Golf Classic, held last month at Windermere Country Clubwas a wonderful success. Over 100 players graced the greens and had a wonderful time, meeting new people, chatting with hole sponsors and enjoying the 'Chamber of Commerce' weather. Congratulations to the team from MetroWest Golf Club on taking home the first place trophy with a score of 56!
  • After a very close election season, the West Orange Political Alliance (W.O.P.A.), achieved a 92% endorsement-to-win ratio. W.O.P.A. is a non-profit, non-partisan organization formed to provide an active political voice in the interests of West Orange County.  Read more about their endorsements and wins here. 
  • In the upcoming days, you will receive an invitation to our annual Member Appreciation Breakfast, scheduled for December 3rd at Tanner Hall in Winter Garden. This event is an opportunity for the Chamber to show our appreciation to all of our Members, as well as introduce the new 2015 Board Members, celebrate our key Members & volunteers and pass the gavel to the incoming Chairman, Debbie Clements of Duke Energy
