The Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce, celebrating its Centennial in 2013, has a rich history of "community building" and being the leading "change agent" for our region. Its Vision today is, most likely, much the same as it was when it was established in 1913 as the Orlando Board of Trade.
The Centennial Celebration in 2013 will be more than a remembrance of the Chamber's past accomplishments; it will also celebrate a new vision to inspire leadership for the future. It will be a purpose-driven celebration, delivering meaningful results while enhancing public awareness and perceptions of the Chamber's role in advancing our community and our region.
“It's exciting to be part of a 100-year-old Chamber of Commerce; working with others, as we celebrate the past and, too, as we advance today's mission, which is fundamentally the same as it was when we first opened our doors as the Orlando Board of Trade back in 1913.”
