It was a Wednesday in early January. So, naturally, a large handful of the Osceola County business sector, brought together by the Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce, were gathered at CenterState Bank in Kissimmee.

For the third year in a row, the Oak Street bank hosted the Chamber’s first-of-the-year Business After Hours. Dozens of Chamber members, and a few more prospective ones, filled the bank Wednesday to reacquaint and network while enjoying food (served up by Texas Cattle Company) and sharing about their businesses, organizations, and the community.

This is always a great event, and we’re honored to host it here. Over the last several years CenterState Bank has grown to six Osceola County branches, but we’re still a community bank, grateful to make local decisions.

Amber Adams

Community President, CenterState Bank

Newstreet said he’s “sure” 2020 will be as prosperous of a year as the recent ones have been for CenterState.

There’s no better place to be. We’re one of the top-10 fastest growing communities in the nation. There are some pains that come with that, but we want to know what’s on the minds of our members, and how the chamber can serve them better and be better connected with them.

Our mission statement is, ‘Champions for business and community,’ so when we gather like this, this is what it’s all about, getting together and creating community relationships and creating each other’s success. We want to make sure we all share that excitement, especially here in Osceola County. We thank Amber and CenterState, and everyone who’s a part of the family.  

John Newstreet

President/CEO, Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce

If the first Kissimmee/Osceola Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours is a sign of what is to come in 2020, CenterState Bank and businesses and organizations all over Osceola County are looking at a year of growth and prosperity!

Positively Osceola would like to thank the Kissimmee/Osceola Chamber of Commerce and CenterState Bank for making a Positive Difference in Osceola County!
