The Chamber provides a forum for making valuable personal and professional contacts in the business community. The Chamber’s events give members access to sharing experiences, knowledge, and insights on business issues and with other professionals. The Naples Chamber’s membership represents some 50,000 employees! And every one of them is a member – eligible to attend any and all our events and participate in our programming
Wake Up Naples
Wake Up Naples is a popular and well-attended breakfast event, held on the second Wednesday of the month. Members can network with one another before and after the presentation by a featured speaker. Though the topic of each meeting changes from month to month, members can be certain that the presentation will offer insight, education and opportunities to further enhance their business.
Accelerated Networking Luncheon
Accelerated Networking Luncheon is a quarterly, members-only networking event geared toward time-crunched business professionals. This event is a great way to make new business contacts, add to your referral business and build stronger relationships in the community.
Each year, the Chamber celebrates the previous year’s accomplishments with a special evening of recognitions, introductions, and entertainment. At this festive affair, the Chamber announces outgoing and incoming officers and members of the Board of Directors and honors the recipients of several important community awards.
Annual Chamber Classic
Members enjoy networking on the greens at the Annual Golf Tournament. This event provides members with the opportunity to play a challenging, private course while sponsors use the event to provide exposure for their companies.
Business After Five
Business After Five is an after-hours networking event that provides members a forum for promoting their businesses. Each month the event is held at a different location and attracts 150-300 business professionals.
LCF Alumni Association Leadership Lunch Series
The LCF Alumni Association Leadership Lunch Series is open to graduates of Leadership Collier, Associate Leadership Collier, Youth Leadership, Campaign for Leadership and the Leadership Institute. The event provides education, stewardship and networking opportunities to keep alumni abreast of the current challenges and opportunities facing the community. Proceeds benefit the LCF Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition assistance for the Chamber leadership programs.
New Member Orientation
Several times a year, the Chamber holds orientation meetings designed to be a “guide to getting the most out of your membership.” Attendees have the opportunity to promote their business while learning about Chamber initiatives, programs, and services to help them grow their business. Prospective members, new members and existing members who would like a “refresher course” on the Chamber are encouraged to attend.
Children's Business Fair
The Children’s Business Fair will offer the opportunity for young entrepreneurs, ages 6-17, to showcase and sell their product or service to the public. Working with the Chamber, children will learn free-market principles, how the workforce drives the local economy and relish in the rewards of their hard work. The Naples Chamber will work with participants post-event to help continue their professional growth, connect them with business leaders and provide support on their entrepreneurial journey.
