Chamber Welcomes New & Renewing Members
As the New Tampa Chamber continues to grow, we would like to welcome the following new members: Go So Free Church, Cherry Berry and New Tampa Patch. We also thank our renewing members for their continued support: Vista Grande at Tampa Palms and Verizon Wireless.
The Chamber also would like to express our sincere appreciation to our Board member and New Tampa resident Lesley Zajac for her years of service to the Chamber’s Board of Directors, the chamber and our members. Lesley has most recently served as Chamber treasurer but will be stepping down at the end of the year. We also thank Craig Miller, president of Full Throttle Intermedia, for his valued service to the Board and the Chamber. We wish you every success in your business! It is through the support of such volunteers who dedicate their time to the organization that we are able to continue to strengthen the chamber, and to develop new and innovative projects to serve our members and the New Tampa community.
