Dear Chamber members,

As this is my first message to you, I would like to start by saying thank you. Thank you for your support and your dedication this summer as we have worked towards unification of the Clearwater Regional Chamber and the Clearwater Beach Chamber. Because of your vision, uniting the business community has become a reality. Together, we can accomplish great things for our community and our region.

Transition is underway. All of the behind the scene details are being accomplished as October 1 is just around the corner. Please know that we are working diligently to roll out all things “Amplify”. For those that have been through a branding process, you know it takes time. Because we want to further your excitement about Amplify Clearwater, we are waiting to do an official roll out post-unification date. So please stay tuned for details.

As your membership comes up for renewal, you will be contacted by a member of our team who will find the right level of involvement in Amplify for you based on your needs. We are excited about a brand-new menu of member services and levels. We think you will be too! This new structure will be unveiled as part of the branding package. We can’t wait to share them with you!

For those of you participating in our October 10th, Golf Tournament, thank you! Due to the good work of the committee and staff, it is shaping up to be a fantastic event. I look forward to seeing you there.

Save the date for two upcoming events:

1) Our Holiday Legislative Preview Breakfast. This brand-new event brings together our region’s lawmakers prior to the legislative session beginning. This allows us the opportunity to hear their vision and goals for the upcoming session and to share ours. This breakfast will take place on December 4th. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Registration is coming soon.

2) Our Annual Celebration of Business which will be held January 15th, 2020 at the Wyndham Grand. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please let us know if you are interested. Look for registration details coming soon. We expect this to be a
sold-out event.

I am very excited about the future of Amplify Clearwater and the impact we will have on our region. Please bear with us as we continue to work through the unification process. We are excited to come together as one team and work on behalf of your interests. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. My door is always open.


Kind Regards,

Amanda Payne
