The Belle Glade Chamber was established in 1938. Currently, there are over 200 businesses and individuals who make up the membership.
The Belle Glade Chamber of Commerce holds its Chamber Breakfast meeting every third Wednesday of the month, September through May (unless otherwise posted) at 7:30am at Lakeside Medical Center. A complimentary breakfast is served to Chamber members and their guests. Each meeting features a local expert speaking on the topic that coincides with the Leadership Glades class taking place that month. These topics about the Glades communities include education and cultural arts, business and economy, health and human services, agriculture and agribusiness, government and judicial systems, environment and water management. More information on Leadership Glades.
Businesses and individuals are welcome to join the Chamber by filling out the application online or at the Chamber office. A sliding scale fee is charged according to the number of employees and whether or not the company is a for-profit or a not-for-profit. Potential businesses from outside the Belle Glade area are also welcome to join and have the same benefits as local members. All business members are permitted to have one insert a year in the monthly Chamber Newsletter at no charge. A second insert within 12 months of the first insert will cost $35. Chamber members are welcome to attend the monthly Chamber Breakfast, the Holiday Mixer in December, and participate in the Chamber Awards Banquet in October and the Chamber Annual Golf Tournament in May. They are encouraged to display their literature at the Chamber office and their business cards on our business card wall.
