Executive Director

DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce and our community, one of the best places in Florida to live, work and raise a family.

I would like to welcome you to our town.  Whether you’re visiting for the day, looking for a new place to call home or you’re already a resident of our thriving community, DeSoto is a great county with a big heart and plenty of opportunities. 

The DeSoto Chamber of Commerce understands that in order to have a strong economic environment you must have a strong community. We are truly blessed in our community to have leaders, business owners, educators and citizens who realize that we all share in the responsibility of creating economic success and happiness within our community.

It is an exciting time to be a member of the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce. We are always creating new networking and promotional opportunities to help our member businesses succeed and grow, including space to advertise on the Chamber website, business referrals, monthly networking opportunities, and continuing education. Other great events that allow our member businesses to gain visibility include the Tater Hill Fun Shoot, Chamber Annual Dinner, Christmas Card Lane and Christmas Parade.  The Chamber’s goal is to work toward improving the quality of life for all through the support and commitment of its members, volunteers and committees. The Chamber is proud to promote events throughout the year to help support the community.

As the Chamber Director, I am honored to work alongside our dedicated Board who all share the same vision, business growth and healthy community environment.

If you are not a member of the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce, please join us today. Your membership will benefit your business and the community. I look forward to working with you! 

Your Chamber

In 1926, a few concerned citizens determined that DeSoto County was in need of a Chamber of Commerce. This group of businessmen established the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce in an effort to assist the business community and encourage economic development. Since that time the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce has strived to maintain that same level of community commitment and, when possible, improve on the services it provides.

Invitation to Join

You are cordially invited to join the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce.

Comprised of over 350 citizens and businesses from around the county, this dynamic organization feels that by working together we can combine resources to improve the prosperity of our community. We would like to offer you the opportunity to develop and enhance your management skills, exposure to creative ideas, early awareness of emerging trends, and opportunities to network with fellow business leaders.

We hope you will join the Home Team. We care confident that you will find the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce a worthwhile investment, and we look forward to working with you to promote your business and our unique and thriving community.
