Bay County Chamber of Commerce relocates for the third time after Hurricane Michael


PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Many buildings and organizations are still picking up the pieces from Hurricane Michael, including the Bay County Chamber of Commerce.

They are now relocating for the third time after the storm. President and CEO Carol Roberts said these adjustments have been tough.

“We’ve been in transition ever since the storm,” said Roberts.  We started with temporary offices at Cramer Chevrolet. Then we were fortunate to get the portable building in which we are located in now.”

They are currently relocating to a building on the campus of Gulf Coast State College. They will share the building with Bay EDA and CareerSource.

Their office will have two working staff members in the building, and the rest will work remotely at home.

And both the commerce and community can still benefit greatly after the storm.

“We can all benefit,” said Roberts. β€œThe community can benefit in many ways from the out-of-town companies coming to help us.”
