As I sit at my desk and write my first message, I am truly humbled by the warm welcome I received at the installation last week and so thankful for the incredible opportunity to serve as Chairman of the Board of the best Chamber in the World. It gives me such great pleasure to serve not only this 91 year old organization but also this great community. And I am so excited to have this outlet to communicate with you. Rest assured that I am committed to the ongoing improvement and enhancement of benefits and services to the membership of the MBCC and the community as a whole.
How sweet it is to be a part of the greatest chamber in the world (did I say that already?)…the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce. Serving the past 8 years on the Executive Board of Governors has taught me so many real life lessons. I have made the greatest relationships that I could have ever asked for and I have learned so much from them. I have witnessed true leadership advance the mission of this Chamber and it gives me great pleasure to have been part of such success. I am so proud to have worked closely with such visionaries like our Past Chairs Jason Loeb and Aaron Perry. Their ethics, integrity and commitment will be an everlasting impact to our Chamber and community.
The Chamber provides an incredible opportunity to network with and meet great people, build long lasting relationships, promote your business and establish remarkable friendships. The Chamber staff is committed to excellence and provides the highest level of service to its members. Membership in the Chamber is powerful and opens a door to some of the greatest opportunities. I challenge all members to find at least one council to get involved in. Come to the meetings, get to know the other members, get involved, and contribute and share something special. The more you put in, the more you will get out.
I look forward to the continued success of the Chamber and the expansion of great relationship building throughout the entire membership. And I personally am excited to lead this Chamber with passion and devotion to our membership and their success!
And if you are not a member, I challenge you to experience the power of membership!
