What does the Valrico Fishhawk Chamber of Commerce do?
The Valrico Fishhawk Chamber of Commerce supports local business owners and non-profit organizations through positive networking, business education, and community involvement.
Our members are involved in building relationships and friendships that make a difference. Our Chamber has approximately 250 members representing businesses of all sizes. We focus on building a “know, like, and trust” approach so we’re comfortable using and referring others to our fellow Chamber members.
The Valrico Fishhawk Chamber of Commerce (VFCC) works year-round to raise funds for a Charity of Choice (selected by the Board President), collect donations for our high school senior scholarship program for students entering a trade school, and give back to our schools with a great teacher luncheon and donated school supplies.
Visit one of our weekly or monthly networking meetings or events to see and hear how much fun you can have growing your business through the Valrico Fishhawk Chamber of Commerce. We’re located in eastern Hillsborough County, 15 minutes east of the I-75 and I-4 corridor.
