The Wellington Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1996, one year after the Village of Wellington itself. It was founded by a group of local business professionals.
The Wellington Chamber was formed to focus on what makes Wellington unique from surrounding communities by emphasizing the differences, to bring a competitive advantage to Wellington merchants, and to protect those differences for all residents. In fact, it was a return to the idea that chambers of commerce best serve their communities when they are local and when they do not try to be all things to all people. It was also felt that local chambers must look to the betterment of their communities in all facets of community life and not just the business aspect of the communities. The following mission statement embodies these two thoughts:
- The Wellington Chamber of Commerce is organized to advance the general welfare and prosperity of the Village of Wellington so that its residents and all areas of its business community shall prosper.
- All necessary means of promotion shall be provided and particular attention and emphasis shall be given to the economic, civic, commercial, cultural, industrial, security and educational interests of the village.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of top businessmen and women who wholeheartedly give their time and resources to make the chamber a more vibrant, successful and positively recognized community based agency.
The many annual programs of the Chamber reflect a rich tradition of achievement of the goals within the mission statement. For many, the year actually starts in late November early December with our biggest event of the year, WinterFest! 6000+ Wellington Residents and visitors alike attended to see local celebrity musical sensation, philanthropist and DIY Network television star (Emmy Award Nominated) “Vanilla Ice” as well as several local up and coming artists perform. Several local dignitaries kick off the time-honored event featuring the beautiful sounds of local performing artists and dance troupes as well as Wellington Chamber vendors and exhibitors.
In March each year, in conjunction with our Board Installation and Presidential appointment, the Wellington Chamber recognizes and awards many of the leaders in the community. This year the Chamber honored our own Roxanne Stein.
Equestrian Sport Productions LLC was the presenting sponsor of our “Flavors” event… Our event attracted over 1500 + attendees! FLAVORS of Wellington brings together the best of the best Wellington Chamber Restaurants/ Catering Venues/Wholesale and Gourmet Markets as well as Country Clubs and Wineries who showcase their businesses, products, menus and exceptional service professionals. Each year our attendees enjoy an evening of dining and dancing.
In addition to our special events, the Chamber has been active in village governmental affairs. For example, the Chamber hosts several “Meet the Candidate” forums during election seasons. The Chamber has been vocal in issues such as encouraging the Village to include in its selection process of contractors and vendors the use of businesses and workers from Palm Beach County as well as opposition to a landfill being located along the State Road 80 corridor, support of the Medical Arts District, and working with the city of revisiting signage ordinances for new and existing businesses as well as hours of operation for local establishments.
The Wellington Chamber also offers many opportunities for local merchants and professionals to network and showcase their businesses. These are not just ribbon-cuttings but true community networking events where one can come and meet our Board of Directors, Ambassadors, your neighbor or maybe your next customer. They are innovative, exciting and effective!
Our monthly luncheons have gained notoriety in the community as innovative, interactive NOT TO MISS events. Each month promises a new and “In the News” high-profile speaker. Topics are of paramount interest to our members and to the community.
Our President’s Circle Membership is comprised of top prominent local business leaders, community leaders and entrepreneurs. This trustee level of the Chamber grows every year and is a perfect opportunity to maintain a highly visible profile in the community.
Perhaps one of the most important things the Wellington Chamber does is to maintain an office in the heart of our business community. Located in the Lake Wellington Professional Center, the office currently gets hundreds of walk-ins a year. We love endorsing our Chamber Members!
We are proud to offer the Official Guide to Wellington, which the Chamber publishes annually. People call the Wellington Chamber first because they recognize it by the name! They want the “local” chamber and they get it with us! Come on by. You’ll be glad you did. “WE ARE WELLINGTON”!
