Florida Chamber of Commerce

Florida Chamber Recognized by Governor and Cabinet for 100 Years of Securing Florida’s Future

Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet are honoring the Florida Chamber of Commerce with a resolution celebrating its 100th anniversary of securing Florida’s future. The Florida Chamber was officially created on April 29, 1916 in an effort to save Florida’s business community – the agriculture industry specifically – from an invasive cattle tick that threatened the livelihood of the state’s leading economic engine.

“One hundred years ago, the biggest threat facing Florida’s economy was a parasite — the cattle tick. While the threats to Florida’s economy have changed, the Florida Chamber’s mission to secure our state’s future, create jobs, and create economic opportunities remain the same.”

– MARK WILSON, President and CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
