Our Beginning: The Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce is the successor to what was a travel-related organization by the name of Siesta Key Vacations, Inc. In a court order dated July 20, 1959 and signed by Sarasota County Circuit Judge Robert E. Hensley, Siesta Key Vacations obtained court approval to amend its charter and rename itself the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce, Inc. The court order carries the signatures of six directors: Harold Lewis, David Dower, James Hicks, Bernice Y. Derr, Al Bosek and Bill Wood.
