President’s Message

WEB_Berry_Naomi_Dear Members and Friends,

The WCC has had a fantastic summer and we hope you have too.

We kicked off our summer events with a Wine & Unwind in Aventura, welcoming some new faces from the northern parts of the county. Then we co-sponsored the Diversity & Flexibility Seminar, where we discussed the importance of diversity in the workplace with a stellar group of panelists. In August, we had both an invigorating discussion of Arianna Huffington’s book Thrive and we launched our new breakfast series.

We have often heard that our members enjoy our events, but would like to see more focus on getting business. In response, we have launched our new “Business Before Business” breakfast series, where we will meet on the third Wednesday of each month and focus strictly on networking. This is a great opportunity to meet potential clients and referral sources. It can also be a great opportunity to showcase your business as each month, a different member business will host and give a short presentation to the group. We hope to see you at our next breakfast on September 17 – please contact Clara at info@womenschamberofcommerce.org if you are interested in hosting.

In addition to our monthly breakfasts, we have great partner events planned, which will give you the opportunity to network with professionals from other great women’s groups in our community. On September 22, we are co-hosting a Candidates’ Night where you can ask the local candidates for the Florida Legislature and U.S. House of Representatives about the issues that matter to you. On October 14, we will honor Judge Sandy Karlan for her contributions to the community while supporting her namesake fellowship at Legal Services of Greater Miami. Stay tuned as we finalize the details on events for the rest of the fall.

We hope you are enjoying our 30th anniversary year as much as we are! We are already planning fantastic events for 2015 and can always use more help, so if you are interested in joining a committee, please contact our committee chairs.

Finally, please give a warm welcome to our new administrator Clara Serrano. Clara will be at our next event to greet you with a smile and is always available to answer your questions. We are lucky to have found a wonderful replacement for our beloved Toma as she has moved on to another position.

Thanks for your support!

Naomi M. Berry
