Can it really be 2013? What happened to 2012?
It just seemed to fly by……..our Expo with over 80 exhibitors and 300 members in attendance…. our signature event this past December…our 3rd annual AT&T YOUNG STARS SHOWCASE presented by Northwestern Mutual/Laser Financial at the beautiful Aventura Arts & Cultural Center (who would have expected our amazing your singers to be accompanied by aerialists tumbling down from the ceiling on blue silk ropes!)……
or our monthly Breakfast Meetings, where our head tables were so large that sometimes we had to wrap them around the room…..or our evening networking receptions where we joined forces with other organizations, like our annual Hard Rock Café Talent Show-Down, or our monthly SpeedBiz, meetings where so much business was conducted that members were saying they didn’t need to go to any other group… or our award-winning Education Committee in partnership with our ten Dade Partner schools….or our monthly Business Development Committee meetings featuring topical guest speakers…….or our monthly Technology Meetings where members were given thousands of dollars of free information and guidance…or our new Real Estate Committee that brought in new members in the industry just to be able to attend those meetings……….and on and on.
And where are we heading in 2013?
Well, you’re reading our first blog…our foray into the world of digital communications! Sure, we’ve been e-mailing you for years….but this is different. You’ll also see some guest bloggers..members who have some interesting info to share with you. As our international membership grows larger, you’ll also see our targeted outreach to them (Hola, mi amigos y amigas!)
I am fortunate to have a great Board of Directors chaired by Cliff Schulman and a great office team: Jessica Bert, VP of Operations and Sofia Bojorge, Executive Assistant who never stop working on our 10 – 11 events each and every month and take on more projects like this one.
