"North Tampa Chamber...Your Business,
Your Community, Come Grow With Us"
67th Annual Installation & Awards Luncheon
June 12, 2014

Thank you to all the attendees that joined us in honoring the past year and celebrating the incoming Board of Directors. Although the luncheon was not as grand as previous evening banquets, it was well attended.

Everyone enjoyed lunch, the opportunity to meet the new board members and socializing with each other. There was also plenty of time for informal networking with other area business people and to welcome some of our newest chamber members.

In addition, the Chamber honored their own with The Phyllis Ellis Memorial "Giver Award" going to Kelly Winterling with Horizon Bay at Lutz, Brookdale Senior Living and The Outstanding Chamber Member Award going to Jenn Beaumont with AIG.

Then of course, came the swearing in of the Officers and Directors for the incoming Board of Directors conducted by Earl Meyer with MeyerTeam Business Coaching, Inc. This always fills the room with awe at the sheer magnitude of 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.

Also, we would like to extend our Thanks and Gratitude to the incoming Associate Directors, recently appointed, who will be taking office on July 1, 2014. Congratulations to Alan Gorlick, Gorlick Financial Strategies, Jim Whittaker, Arachne Business Systems and Andrea Brogan, Meals on Wheels.

For those of you who were there, we look forward to seeing you again next year. For those of you, who missed this very eventful luncheon, ask your fellow chamber members and their guests how much fun they had. Then start planning now to be there next year by clearing your calendar for the end of June 2015. We are planning to return to the evening banquet format. Watch for the exact date to be published in the calendar online at or in your emails.

Better yet, be one of the award winners, one of the new board members being installed, or a part of the planning committee for next year’s banquet. The rewards are endless. With the on-going interest and support of all our members, the North Tampa Chamber of Commerce will continue the commitment to make a difference in the community by promoting the positive image of North Tampa.
