As with every organization, it’s the people that breathe life into the mission. However, maximizing its supporting initiatives always requires a little money (well actually, quite a bit of it). Here, at the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, we’re continuing to come up with ideas to better our businesses and community – and funding is a crucial source in implementing them. Recently, a number of our members have not only dedicated their time and passion to the organization, but also significant monetary donations. One of my initial goals upon becoming Chairman was to establish a special recognition level for these individuals. A year later, I’m happy to announce the installment of the Chairman Circle.
The Chairman Circle aims to give added value back to members/companies that donate $10,000 or more to the Chamber. Our largest financial supporters receive invitations to four quarterly dinners to discuss important and relevant community topics and share key insights. This is also an opportune time to discuss their individual ideas and garner support as they try and grow their respective businesses. My vision for this Circle is not only to generate business and growth for Miami Beach, but also enhance the Chamber’s position on a national scale. The Chairman Circle membership also includes Chamber website advertising.
These individual donations are substantially more than we’ve ever received before and are critical to helping us carry out our mission to provide the best infrastructure in which to live, work and enjoy. I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm with this elite group. If you are interested in learning more about or joining the Chairman’s Circle, please call Ceci Velasco at the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce at (305) 674-1300.
At your service,
Jason Loeb, Sudsies
Chairman, Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce.
