In addition, the Chamber honored their own with The Phyllis Ellis Memorial

the responsibility being accepted by volunteers willing to serve in the
North Tampa Chamber.
A Very BIG THANK YOU all of those members on the new board, who are willing
to dedicate their time, expertise and ideas to serving the Businesses and
Community through the North Tampa Chamber of Commerce. Your efforts and
dedication will promote businesses and the community at large assuring that
the North Tampa area is a better place to live, thrive and do business.
