Our partners at the City of Florence are awesome! Committed leadership, forward focused, business and tourism friendly, compassionate, and in-tune with what’s going on. The Chamber and the City collaborate on several fun events and important issues that keep people employed and engaged in commerce to make this the most livable city (we think) anywhere! The City recently became a Coast Guard City and a Tree City and has won a number of national accolades.
