In 2000, the Chamber—then called The Chamber, Daytona/Halifax Area—was instrumental in establishing a U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) presence in Daytona Beach. The collaborative effort between the City of Daytona Beach, County of Volusia, Central Florida Sports Commission, Consolidated-Tomoka Land Company, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and The Chamber led to the development of the state-of-the-art Florida Tennis Center, located adjacent to LPGA. To this day, the 24-court stadium is home to the Greater Volusia Tennis League and hosts numerous USTA tournaments every year.
In 2018, the Chamber recruited community members to participate in the 38th class of Leadership Daytona. Class XXXVIII was posed with one of the Chamber’s greatest challenges: Putting together a stellar celebration for the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Centennial year in 2019. From both the Chamber and Leadership Daytona Class XXXVIII, thank you for celebrating 100 years with us!
