The 21st Annual Benchmarking Visit

For over 20 years, the Chamber has taken an annual Benchmarking Visit to investigate new programs and initiatives in a city similar to our community. It gives us a chance to study other great cities and adapt best practices to meet the growing needs of Tampa Bay. The 21st Annual Benchmarking Visit will take us to the Research Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) in North Carolina.
