Anabel Cruz, Membership Concierge
Anabel is excited to promote the virtues of Clearwater for both business and pleasure. Born and raised in Dunedin as one of three triplets and raising three children (Areana, Ashton and Adison), she experiences the benefits of Clearwater every day. As staff of the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce, Anabel will help enhance both members’ businesses and the local community. She will be assisting our VP of Membership in keeping our members engaged in Chamber news and events. She comes from a diverse background in sales and marketing, travel and information technology and looks forward to using these skills to further the commitment and support of the Clearwater Chamber. In her free time, you can find her volunteering, enjoying the beach and spending precious time with her children.
Yesterday we celebrated LAL Spa with a ribbon cutting! We look forward to their future involvement in Clearwater and the Chamber!
Introducing the Florida Craft Beverage Finder on
VISIT FLORIDA, in partnership with the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, has launched a  Florida Craft Beverage Finder  on The interactive vacation planning tool, built on the same platform used to construct VISIT FLORIDA’s successful Beach and Attractions Finders, aggregates images of different craft breweries, wineries, or distilleries based on changes made to the dial settings. Four separate settings can be adjusted depending on the user’s vacation preferences. The interface then matches the user with venues throughout the state. To have your brewery, winery, or distillery considered for inclusion on the Craft Beverage Finder, contact the VISIT FLORIDA content team at . If you have interest in other learning about other opportunities for involvement with VISIT FLORIDA, please contact your Regional Partnership Manager based in Clearwater, Jen Carlisle at
