The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce is located in the heart of south central Florida, it is a non-coastal, agricultural wonderland. While many Florida cities are known for their beaches and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, Immokalee is known for its relatively small population (29,000) and pastoral atmosphere (farming). The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce represents Ave Maria, Big Cypress and the surrounding areas. The communities of Immokalee are proud of their heritage and diversity and the powers that lie behind the Immokalee Chamber of Commerce have made a definite mark with some major community programs that expressly "give back" to the community of Immokalee. The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce and its community is presently flourishing. The slogan for the Immokalee Chamber of Commerce is Welcome to the Place "Where worlds of opportunity begin”.
