The DBC engines are running at full speed. We are working aggressively on the different committees, each of which plays an integral role in this organization. One of the best ways to grow your business and maximize your membership is by getting involved in one of the 11 working committees of DBC that form the life-blood of our organization.
With dedicated Chairs, serving in a leadership capacity, each committee does significant work to support the strategic mission of the DBC. Each year the committees convene to set goals for the upcoming year, laying out those priorities that will keep the organization well-positioned as the voice for the Doral business community.
Most committees meet monthly on a set day and time. Choose a committee to grow your business and choose one to grow professionally.
The current committees are Education, DBC Forum, Financial Services, Small Business, Healthcare, International Business, Trustees, Ambassadors, Women’s Alliance, Arts, Culture & Entertainment, and Commercial & Industrial Real Estate.
The Education Committee had its first event of the year on March 12 at a Signature Breakfast in the Doral Golf Spa Resort, sponsored by Florida National University (FNU). We had an excellent turnout for the event, due in part by the presence of the keynote speaker, Miami Dade School Superintendent Alberto Carvalho.
Mr. Carvalho impressed the audience as he eloquently described the remarkable progress achieved during his five-year tenure as leader of the nation’s fourth largest school district. The event was a tremendous success, well represented by local schools and many members of the DBC. The Committee Chair, along with the entire Education Committee, presented a fabulous program and provided an excellent networking opportunity for the participants.
There are exciting new plans in the works, such as the Fourth Annual Overseas Chinese Gala, Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, at the Intercontinental Hotel, May 18. We’ve already sent out SAVE THE DATE notices and we are getting ready for wonderful evening of fun and networking. More to come, so stay tuned!
Once more, words cannot express my gratitude to our members for their loyalty and support. On behalf of the members of our Board, thank you for making our job easier — as we GROW TOGETHER…. ONE CONNECTION AT A TIME!
