Area Councils

The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce has four area council that represent the "eyes and ears" of their respective business communities: Bunnell, Flagler Beach, the Hammock and Palm Coast. The Area Councils are a network of local businesses that support one another, provide opportunities to vet and tackle local issues and encourage economic prosperity in their city. These councils provide more localized networking opportunities and a channel to bring to focus the unique business needs of their community. Area council chairmen have seats on the Chamber's board of directors and a direct line to the Business Issues Committees to surface and address challenges and opportunities.
