President’s Update

I am honored to serve as this year’s President of the Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County. It is my pleasure to lead such a dynamic group of women. Our members are business women who strive to improve themselves personally and professionally as well as the community around them. Our mission is to empower members and to advance women’s leadership in our local economy through networking, professional development, and community engagement, and I am proud to say our Board of Directors exemplifies that. These women are not only strong business women but leaders in their industries. They are the reason we are a successful chamber.

This is an exciting time for us in chamber! As you may be aware, March is National Women’s History Month. The Women’s Chamber of Palm Beach County works all year long to put on our signature event in March, the Giraffe Awards. The month kicks off with our Women’s History Month Mixer at the Chesterfield Hotel Palm Beach, followed by a Proclamation in the Commissioner’s Chamber to declare Women’s History Month in Palm Beach County. Next is our VIP reception for the Giraffe Awards. Ending the month is our Annual Giraffe Awards Luncheon, where we celebrate women who “stick their necks out” in the community. It is a glorious affair to celebrate these women who truly inspire us.

I hope that you join us for these events and encourage you to become a Giraffe sponsor. Sponsorship is a great, cost-effective way to promote your business as well as connect with our membership. We have a brand-new website and many opportunities for you to showcase your business.

Thank you to all of our current members and sponsors who make me proud to be your President. I wish you all a joyful and prosperous 2017.
