In addition to our monthly breakfasts and after hours, the Destin Chamber offers opportunities for members to connect in smaller group settings.
The Ambassadors, an elite group of Chamber volunteers, welcome and mentor new and existing members, as well as attend and serve at all Chamber events. They meet quarterly to discuss upcoming events and ways in which they can more effectively serve the membership. You must be a Destin Chamber member to apply and attend an orientation upon acceptance.
Ladies Who Launch offers the Chamber's female membership a platform for strategic networking and relationship building, while training, motivating and inspiring those members. The group is currently hosting a Powerhouse Women series, highlighting impactful women in our community. It meets during lunch in the months of February, April, June, August, and October.
The Military Affairs Council works with area bases and helps the business community recognize and appreciate the military’s contributions to the Destin area. Anyone with an interest in the military is invited to attend. MAC meets during lunch on the first Wednesday of most months, with the exception of January and July. MAC also receives invitations to annual base tours.
The Tourism & Hospitality Group's mission is to bring value to the Destin tourism community through training and information and to become a unified voice of hospitality-based businesses whose success is centered on the tourism industry in our area. Anyone with an interest in tourism is invited to attend meetings, which are usually held during lunch in the months of January, March, May, September, and November.
Our Young Professionals group targets Destin area business professionals under the age of 40. It hosts monthly Sunset Socials, including the popular Friendsgiving during November and a Holiday Mixer in December with all of the YP programs in Okaloosa and Walton counties. In May 2023, the first Young Professionals of Northwest Florida Leadership Conference was held, allowing YPs to tap into the knowledge and expertise of community and business leaders. After the overwhelming positive feedback from the event, plans are underway for a 2024 conference.
