Welcome to the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce’s official website. This is an exciting time in the evolution of our growing organization. I want first to thank you for your interest in Florida’s oldest historically black Chamber of Commerce. That designation means a lot to the citizens and businesses of the South Florida area.
We pride ourselves in being the voice of the minority business community. The Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1974 to act on behalf of the emerging black business community. And through the years from David Fincher to Dorothy Baker and now Bill Diggs as its leader, we will continue to hold true to that primary mission.
While we are always in a state of movement and growth we see both of those activities as positive concepts that we will embrace. You will see the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce begin to strategically analyze its entire membership’s involvement in the mainstream of Miami-Dade business.
We have convened a well-respected board of economists whose primary mission will be to study how well our businesses are being utilized in South Florida. We will not only create a study, we will also provide solutions and we are confident that those solutions will lead to increased business opportunities for minority owned businesses. We are launching four other revolutionary initiatives. They are the Women’s Business Council, the Young Professionals Network, Urban Partnership for Prosperity, and the Business Empowerment Networking Series.
If you are a member, thank you for your support. If you are not, please consider joining. For without your financial support we cannot do the work to help black businesses grow. Stay tuned to our ever-changing website because you will find out the latest information on the three major events which are the Annual Business Leaders Luncheon, our stellar “End of the Year” Gala and our Annual Golf Tournament. During the year we hosts various events that are committee driven such as our Young Professionals Network, the Urban Partnership for Prosperity Program and the Women’s Business Council among others. I urge you to join one of our committees, as smart and articulate business people are always an enhancement to our organization.
Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce is here to lead the growth, development and rise of Minority Business throughout this region. Be apart of the excitement; so that you and your business can be a part of this economic resurgence for Minority Owned Business! My staff and I stand ready and prepared to accept the challenge to help your business grow. I look forward to seeing you at one of our many Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce events.
