Letter from the Chair

The new year is in full swing! Everyone is back to work and school and the Miami Beach community is as energetic and inspiring as ever. Winter is truly a magical time to be in Miami Beach. The humidity has abated, the beach breeze is cool, yet the sun still keeps us warm. Tourists flock to Miami Beach during the winter and so many great events take advantage of the amiable weather. Now more than ever, tourists are coming for more than weather and beaches—they are coming for the Miami Beach art and culture, the shopping, the lifestyle we know and love.

The winter in Miami has plenty to offer to locals and visitors alike. Here at the Chamber we have a packed schedule. Our quarterly pillar breakfast took place a couple weeks ago with Former City of Miami Mayor Manny Diaz delivering inspiring words of wisdom. The Chamber is hosting events to acquaint new members to everything it has to offer, and, of course, the extensive programming with council meetings and networking events continues as usual.

There is no better time than the present to experience the power of membership! Jump right in with upcoming events such as the Champions of Business Awards Luncheon on Jan. 29 to honor past chairman Jason Loeb, NBA sports agent David Sugarman and The Forge proprietor Shareef Malnik. Take part in the 1st Annual Sports Weekend Feb. 28 to Mar. 2, featuring both a golf and fishing tournament to benefit the Chamber’s Educational Foundation.

There are so many great opportunities to build relationships and expand your business. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to stop by the Chamber or give us a call and experience the power of membership!

I wish all of you continued success and happiness.

At Your Service,

Alan A. Lips
