From The Executive Director...

Welcome to the DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce and thank you to our members for supporting the Chamber and its mission.  The DeLand Area Chamber is proud to serve seven distinct and unique communities.  Within the communities of DeLand, Cassadaga, Lake Helen, DeLeon Springs, Barberville, Pierson and Seville, you will find hundreds of member businesses waiting to serve you.  Our membership is vast and varied and our communities are rich with history, economic diversity and unrivaled lifestyles.  Reference our website to locate virtually every type of business.  If you need information about the area, contact our Visitors Center at (386) 734-4331 or e-mail us at office@delandchamber.org.


If you are new to the Chamber or want to learn more about the benefits of being a Chamber member, we have listed a few:

  1. Member to Member Discount Program - This program offers discounts to over 60 member businesses. This was the number one (1) benefit requested by our membership. Keep in mind, that through your dues, many or all of your employees may take advantage of the Member to Member Discount Program. This is a direct benefit you could be offering your employees.
  2. Chamber Web Site - Our web site continues to grow in popularity and receives over 70,000 accesses each month! As a Chamber member, you can be linked, if requested, from our online Members Directory at no charge. You can also take advantage of exclusive web page sponsor opportunities offered only to Chamber members.
  3. Monthly Networking & Business Opportunities - at our "Business After Hours" and other events to include “member expos” throughout the year.
  4. Chamber's Visitor Center - Our Visitors Center continues to be the place people go for information and assistance and serves approximately 11,000 people a year. Your membership affords you the opportunity to set up a display in the Center and display your business cards and brochures. This level of exposure is hard to come by.

Collaborations with the City of DeLand, the County of Volusia, the West Volusia Tourism Advertising Authority and our neighboring Chambers have strengthened our ability to serve you and the community.

In 2002, the "Chamber Alliance" was formed to unify Volusia County on issues affecting the business community.  The "Alliance" continues to address issues of top priority.  Among them are:

1.  Health Insurance Mandates: Support measures that would cap mandates on health insurance policies.

2.  Small Business Health Insurance: Support measures that would stabilize and make the cost of health insurance more affordable for small businesses.

3.  Constitutional Amendments: Address the way in which constitutional amendments are currently placed on the ballot.

We will continue to work with and through the Chamber Alliance, the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to ensure issues are addressed on behalf of our membership. Our various committees will continue to address issues on a local level as they arise throughout the year.

Each quarter, we host a New Member Reception that outlines all of the programs and benefits you have available to you under the Chamber. If you haven't been to one, we encourage you to attend. If you can't make the reception, please know we keep an “open door” policy. Come by anytime to learn more about the Chamber. On behalf of our entire staff, I thank you for your continued support of the DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce. We appreciate your investment and look forward to serving you.
