The Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce is something that we seeked out because of its great reputation and ability to connect people and business. We have grown our awareness and company through the Chamber and its many networking functions. We couldn't have worked without the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce.

Apart from being a warm and welcoming group of people, the Miami Beach Chamber really helped me embrace the world of non-profit organization and community outreach. Through Wendy Unger, I became involved in the Pillar Grant and Scholarship committee, subsequently co-chaired the Miami Beach Chamber Education Foundation, organized a fund raiser, became a judge at the Teacher of the Year Award and also the chair of the City of Miami Beach Service Partnership helping truant students and families...

The Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce has provided an amazing amount of support for our organization. DECOBIKE launched into dozens of areas of the city and yields benefits for many types of businesses and properties, and communicating effectively with them is a key element to the success of our city-wide bike sharing program. From opening doors and introducing new community stakeholders to our organization and other community outreach, the Chamber has aided this process tremendously. I highly recommend that both new and existing businesses take advantage of this wonderful networking and support organization.

In 2006 I created the Sicilian Film Festival, a non profit corporation dedicated to cinema and culture. It has not been easy to grow up this creature for 6 years. I joined the MBCC only in 2011 and suddenly I discovered a great group of people and a kind of "family" where to share needs and experiences and where to brainstorm with interesting people and entrepreneurs of all kinds several times a week with great results. I should have joined the MBCC before!

The Miami Beach Chamber is an essential starting point for anyone looking to do business in Miami Beach, or the surrounding community. Since joining the Pillar Trustee level, I have been able to form relationships with high level people that I more than likely would never have had an opportunity to meet. Through the different types of events, the Miami Beach Chamber provides the exact audience that perhaps you are looking to target and their sponsorship opportunities create the venue to put you in the spotlight. Of course the chamber only works for you, if you work it, but if you put in the time and remain consistent, then you will no doubt reap the rewards and make great friendships and have a good time along the way.

From the beginning I felt the difference in my business and as I became more active the more business that I was receiving the last Luncheon I donated the center pieces --- I received over $3,000 in sales immediately from the ladies that where at the luncheon and saw my arrangements. I would recommend any business owner join the chamber, it pays it self in no time and you make many new business contacts in your community.

When I opened my salon in Miami Beach, I joined the chamber and immediately participated in the Miami Beach INcard program, a business stimulus program created by the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce. To date, I am proud to say that over 60% of my business has been created through my participation in the INcard program. Thank you to the chamber staff for their help in opening Chez Badeux Salon and growing my relationships, which led to the opening of my second location, Muse Beauty Suite.
