The CEP

The Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP) was formed to create a one-stop approach to business retention, attraction and creation efforts. Moving Forward is our charge and it reflects our desire to be a unified voice and catalyst for the business community. By working together with our partners and community investors, we will continue to improve our quality of life and build a strong base for economic development in Marion County.

The CEP recognizes and embraces its mission as the Chamber & Economic Partnership for all of Marion County. As a result, five strategic program areas will set the aggressive and forward-thinking direction for CEP. These program areas will be intentional in ensuring that initiatives and activities will be held throughout the county; will be reflective of the needs of businesses throughout the county; and, will benefit businesses throughout the county.
