The History of the Chamber

The Davie-Cooper City Chamber of Commerce represents the business communities of Davie and Cooper City. Founded in 1937, we are a nonprofit membership organization compromised of volunteers who support activities that are beneficial to the community and that advance the economic, professional, and civic welfare of the area. The Chamber unites businesses and professional leaders and firms in the creation of the central agency for improving business and building a better community.

There is a place in the Chamber for anyone who has the desire to improve the business and residential climate of his or her community. The Chamber directs the energies of those who believe that a community worth living in is a community worth improving. The Chamber enables people to accomplish collectively what no one of them could do individually. Our strength lies in attracting the greatest number of individuals and firms into the membership, thereby creating a pool of resources from which can be drawn ideas, energy, and finances. Serving as a central planning agency, the Chamber identifies leaders and channels resources to enable them to evaluate the efforts for community progress.

The Chamber serves as a catalyst for development, providing a channel through which countless volunteer hours are dedicated to the development of education, commerce, and industry. Task force committees form action groups and special programs to address the issues on community stability and the economy. As a multi-programmed organization, the Chamber actively fights government controls and interference that might harm a good business climate, protects the well being of business owners and residents through responsible law enforcement, a sound educational system and promotion of government efficiency.

As a fellowship, the Chamber fosters the building of long lasting networks and friendships, develops shared goals and creates a bond based on the love of our community and the value of a good business. The Chamber is small business and large business, government and education, environment and development, working together toward making our community count.
