The mission of the Greater Naples Chamber is to cultivate economic opportunity for all. We advance that mission by focusing on public policy priorities that promote a business friendly environment, enhance and expand our workforce, and invest in our community.
Public Policy Committee
The Naples Chamber has an active and engaged Public Policy Committee. The committee includes Chamber board members, investment-level Chamber members and graduates of our Leadership Collier Foundation programs. The advisory committee meets monthly to discuss a variety of public policy issues important to the Greater Naples Chamber, Collier County and Southwest Florida.
Julie Schmelzle, the senior vice president/senior client manager at Bank of America and chair-elect of the Naples Chamber Board of Directors, currently serves as chairman of the Public Policy Committee.
