About Us


Responding to what Central Florida’s leaders have asked for, and in a historic vote of confidence by members of the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce and the community-at-large, the Central Florida Partnership was established December 12, 2007.

The Central Florida Partnership was created to anticipate the complexities of global markets, growth, and collaboration – and to respond with timely and appropriate action. 

The Central Florida Partnership is an essential place for leaders to convene, set priorities, and address our region’s toughest challenges and identify our greatest opportunities. Serving business, civic and community leaders in Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole and Volusia Counties – the Central Florida Partnership is a business led initiative where regional leaders come together to share regional conversations – moving ideas to results.

The Central Florida Partnership is America’s Newest Regional Partnership – and is a platform where regional leaders can learn to better collaborate, cooperate and coordinate – resulting in improved communications throughout the Central Florida Region. The Central Florida Partnership is where positive ideas are advanced on behalf of our region – ideas that matter most to the millions of people who live, work, learn and play in Central Florida.

Overarching Mission
Anticipate the complexities of global markets, growth and collaboration and respond with timely and appropriate action to ensure economic prosperity and quality of life.

A platform for collaboration where ideas are turned into results and where projects are successfully advanced to benefit the millions of people who call Central Florida home.
