PRIVET is a free web and mobile-based portal to all the events, activities, businesses, and virtually every valuable resource in and around Palm Beach. This service is provided "for residents by residents." We also hope to welcome new residents, support the vital businesses and organizations that help make Palm Beach special and continue to engage and connect our community.
PRIVET is guided by the PRIVET Advisory Group made up of both residents and local business
PRIVET is purposefully simple to navigate and clean in design to support all ages and abilities. We are actively working towards achieving a fully accessible website that conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AA Success Criteria (WCAG 2.1 AA). Our website will be audited on a periodic basis to try to ensure that it remains fully accessible.
HOW DID PRIVET GET STARTED?
The concept for PRIVET came out of the Strategic Planning Committee at the Palm Beach Civic Association (PBCA) which identified a resident need for helpful access to local information. The initial version was developed in 2020 when there was also much pandemic concern about the health of our local retailers. A business preview was launched to over 1,000 local businesses and organizations with the generous help of the PBCA and Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce. We incorporated all feedback and now PRIVET is being offered for a resident preview and hopes to officially launch in Fall 2023.
WILL YOU LAUNCH PRIVET FOR OTHER COMMUNITIES?
We'd like to! We are working with our media partners to assess whether this makes sense and where. Please let us know HERE if you have any thoughts or might like to help us do so.
WHO GETS LISTED ON PRIVET?
While site sponsors and partners receive some listing benefits, our intent is to provide an opportunity for any entity that serves the residents or supports the island. PRIVET does not provide opinions about specific businesses, although we allow individuals to do so through our PRIVET PICKS feature. Qualifications for businesses or organization inclusion are listed in our BUSINESS PROFILE FORM and reviewed periodically by our PRIVET Advisory Group.
HOW DO I GET MY EVENTS LISTED ON THE CALENDAR?

If you have updates, please send your event details (including your registration link) to our community manager HERE if you are qualified to list events on PRIVET. Sorry, but we are not able to list any unqualified events at this time. We have some limitations for our event listings depending on your business classification.
