I am humbled and honored to serve as the 2017 Chairman of the Board of the Greater Boynton Beach Chamber of Commerce. Having been active in the Chamber for several years, I have witnessed this organization to truly be focused on the success of the local businesses and industry.
The Boynton Beach community exhibits a tremendous sense of community pride that is obvious from the unbelievable hardworking network of volunteers found here. The Chamber has earned its position in the community as the conduit between business and government. There is an active Government Affairs committee that meets monthly with prominent members of the city government. This interaction keeps the Chamber informed of what is going on in the community and how the Chamber members can promote their businesses through learning what is happening in the community.
In addition to the Government Affairs committee, the Chamber provides opportunities for its members. For new members, it’s “Bagels with the Boss.” Monthly “Meet Me at the Mixer” events give business owners and members an opportunity to network after hours. At monthly “Networking Over Easy” events, members have another opportunity to network early in the morning. These are just a few of the activities the Chamber supports for its members and the community. There are special events from “Taste of Boynton,” which is the premier annual event to sample the food from area restaurants along with a wine tasting, to the Annual Porges Golf Cup and the new Harvest Fest, which is a free event for the community. The Boynton Beach Chamber of Commerce offers opportunities and access for your business and partnership in building a stronger community.
As an employee of IberiaBank for three years, I am fortunate to work for a company that allows me time to give back to the community, which I greatly enjoy. We are committed to the communities we serve and strive to support the betterment of the community and economic development of the area. Please let me remind you that you will get out of the Chamber what you put into the Chamber. Other opportunities to participate are ribbon cuttings, the Ambassador committee and leads groups. If you are interested in growing your business, there are many ways to do it.
The growth and success of your Chamber is made possible by the dedicated and committed support of staff, the existing members and the creation of new members. I hope you would like to find out more about the membership benefits we have to offer and are encouraged to become a member.
If you should have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact the Chamber at (561) 732-9501.
Our mission statement: CONNECTING BUSINESS TO EVERYTHING THAT CREATES SUCCESS.
