Greetings From The Chairman

Michael WelchI have the great honor of being elected by my colleagues in the business community as the current Chairman for our Chamber. My focus will be to uplift and provide an array of services for the business owner in our community. Stay tuned for exciting times with new regional partnerships, the introduction of new resources for our area’s merchants and a focused voice of business. For the interests of the Chamber are the interests of our members and the thousands of employees who help make Lehigh Acres a community on the move.

As we continue through 2019 watch for improvements to our Chamber HQ as I like to call it. Before long with improvements it will be an even better center for “ambassadorship” as people from around the country and beyond take a look at our community for home ownership in a community with a “hometown” feel.

Our Chamber is committed to a full schedule of events and all are welcome! I thank our Past Chairman Ed Moore for his great leadership, and I encourage you to read his brief statement on this page.

Don’t hesitate to contact me directly for you comments and concerns at or call me at 239.565.8450
