Improve Your Bottom Line
Here are some things you should consider as part of your business plan to ensure solid performance in the first and second quarters.
Most of you should have received the latest edition of the Guide To Greater Fort Lauderdale print version. If you have not, you can always swing by your Chamber and pick one up at the front counter. Use this reference source to connect to Chamber members and use for everything from restaurants to accounting firms and more.
Many of you are taking advantage of registering for one of our committees at the Chamber. What we have learned with our investors is that they are more likely to partner with people they know and respect. Pitching-in on a committee is an outstanding way to build credibility. Pick one in which you have an interest.
There is still time to enroll in our Executive Leadership Orientation program we co-produce with Leadership Broward. This is an accelerated program for C-level professionals either new to the position, area or both. I went through it and found it relevant, compelling and well worth my time.
Here is some other news you may find valuable:
- Sand continues to be placed on the beach as part of our re-nourishment efforts. Hopefully, we will finish the project before turtle season begins.
- The State Legislature is eyeing expansion of the use of the Tourist Development Tax for additional emergency medical and law enforcement. Our Government Affairs Committee is weighing in on this as of this writing.
- Our Councils and Committees are finishing up on their business plans for the year. Chairman Heiko Dobrikow, Riverside Hotel, has asked for them to be in by March. This will be our road map moving forward.
