Our Role

The Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce plays a significant role in the business climate and economy of our area. Martin County is one of Florida's sustainable communities, and the mission, programs and activities of the Chamber are vital to a healthy and sustainable region.

The Chamber offers services and benefits to our 1,300-plus members, the community, area visitors. As the “front door” of the Treasure Coast, we provide relocation packages including current demographics. We offer business counseling, advertising, employer and job seeker support programs, and countless monthly networking opportunities.

There are many ways to get involved. The Chamber actively recruits member volunteers to serve on its committees and task forces. These include State, Local, and National Government Affairs and Transportation committees. The Ambassador Committee serves to welcome new members, engage existing members, and support chamber events as liaison between staff and members. C-PAC, the Chamber’s Political Action Committee, promotes participation in the political process. The Committee focuses on issues affecting business and commerce in our area.

The Chamber is also involved in the River Coalition, a group of 100 organizations bonded together to take legal action against the government entities responsible for polluting our rivers and estuaries. Whether appearing before the City Commission, the Board of County Commissioners, the state Legislative bodies, the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives, the Chamber is involved in all aspects of our business and community life.

LEADERship Martin County, established in 1990, is an annual ten-month program, now in its 33rd year. Annually, 30 applicants are selected to participate, with a goal to learn more about the community. The purpose is to develop leaders in our community. Martin Youth LEADERship program, a project of LEADERship Martin County Alumni is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply and only 35 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County.

Partnership are vitally important to the work we do. The Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce is a member of the countywide Council of Chambers, an organization consisting of the five county Chambers of Commerce, formed to discuss common issues, provide unified efforts in speaking out to represent business interests of the area. The Chamber works with the Economic Council of Martin County and is a founding member of the Business Development Board of Martin County.

What is a Chamber of Commerce?

A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS a voluntary organization that unites the business and professional people in an effort to expand the economy of the area.

A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS business people concerned about improving the area they do business in, and are willing to do something about it actively.

Its strengths lie in the number and diversity of its membership. Both large and small businesses from virtually every profession are represented and influence investments in the Chamber. THE MEMBERS ARE THE CHAMBER!

The more members the Chamber has, the better it can represent the business community. It accomplishes collectively what no business can do alone.

Today, Chambers of Commerce have become community organizations which recognize all the factors that affect the community and adjust its program accordingly.

  • A social service, welfare, or charitable insitituion.
  • A private advertising, publicity, or public relations agency.
