The Cedar Key Area Chamber of Commerce promotes and encourages good business economic growth by sponsoring, organizing, and participating in events that showcase local businesses and our community. We represent a cross-section of the area's businesses from home-based businesses to larger enterprises. We continue to look for new opportunities to help our members prosper in our home - the beautiful community of Cedar Key.
Chamber Membership offers area businesses a chance to network with their peers and to give back to the community. Members volunteer their time to help support Chamber activities and we also have fun working together! As a Chamber member, your business will benefit from our advertising and marketing programs which includes a listing on our website.
