SouthShore Chamber of Commerce
The excitement for the entire South Shore area as well as the SouthShore Chamber is at an all- time high right now…. It’s amazing to look around and see the growth that is finally coming around to South County! At the chamber, we are growing in our committees and events and there are so many members coming out and getting involved! This makes us so excited and puts the pressure on us to continue to thrive with membership as well as everything we offer to all of you.
During the month of March, we want YOUR help! We would like to hit a major goal and make it fun and exciting along the way! We want to sign up a ‘NEW MEMBER PER DAY’ during the month. That would give us 31 new members just in March! There are so many businesses out there who have indicated they would like to join in the past but haven’t gotten around to it…. So NOW is the time!
Please help us to reach our goal! Spread the word and send businesses our way! Make sure that they indicate on the membership application that YOU referred them so you can get a $25 credit on your 2015 membership dues.
The member that brings the MOST new members to us (during the month of March) will receive an incredible package to include the following:
· 6 months FREE- full page Ad in the monthly chamber newsletter
· 6 months FREE- Ad on the www.southshorechamberofcommerce.org website
· 10x10 booth space at the 2014 Pigs in the Parking Lot BBQ, Beer & Blues Fest (May 16)
· Business of the Week – to be used prior to July
· 6 free luncheon passes to be used in 2014
This is a total value of over $1500.00 (not to mention the credits you will get on your 2015 membership dues- $25 for each new member signed)
Your name MUST be written on the membership applications as the “referring member” in order to count!
We will give weekly updates and on April Fool’s Day we will announce the winner!
So… let’s ride this wave together and thrive in all things to come in 2014!
Go get em!!!!

The SouthShore Chamber merged two historic Chambers in July of 2011, combining Apollo Beach and Ruskin. The Apollo Beach Chamber was founded in 1985 originally as an all volunteer Welcome Center. The Ruskin Chamber goes back to 1928 and was the very first chamber in Southern Hillsborough County.
These two communities of SouthShore offer the ideal blend of natural beauty, relaxation and recreation. The area combines both waterfront and rural communities which are fast becoming business destinations as the Tampa Bay area grows.
The mission of the SouthShore Chamber of Commerce is to commit ourselves to growth through proper planning, new membership acquisition and servicing of existing members through value-added projects.
We seek continuous improvement in our ability to provide the leadership needed for effective economic development.
Our vision is to preserve our historic heritage while meeting the changing business needs of our community.
Come discover the excitement of SouthShore!
