The Greater Pensacola Chamber has made a commitment to support member business development by organizing the Seminar Series.

Selected presenters volunteer to conduct workshops and seminars of approximately 60 minutes in length. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals for multiple topics. All seminars are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month.

Ground Breakings and Ribbon Cuttings
The Chamber conducts ribbon cutting ceremonies as a free service to Chamber members. Ceremonies can be performed by themselves or as a part of an open house or grand opening. We bring the camera, official scissors and, of course, the ribbon!
There are many benefits to having a ceremony for your new business or location. The Ambassadors attend ribbon cutting ceremonies on behalf of the Chamber members. Having Ambassadors and Chamber members in your business provides an excellent networking and publicity opportunity.
