Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee is the advocacy arm of the chamber. Advocacy and education is critical to the business community. The Englewood Chamber advocates at the federal, state and local levels to make sure the business climate is the best it can be and businesses can operate in a truly free enterprise. We can also provide assistance with permitting, licensing and more. We partner with other organizations like the County Economic Development Offices and our Visitor & Convention Bureaus to add to our toolbox of resources.

Committee Members:
– Doug Izzo, Englewood Chamber of Commerce (Staff Liaison)
– Jonathan Varner, Wampler Varner Insurance Group (Committee Chair & Board Liaison)
– Wendy Benson, iTrip Vacations
– Ken Stead, Cape Haze Marina
– Jacqueline Waterhouse, DMK Associates
