Just get started

Time is running out for you to register for Amethyst, partner with the Chamber for our 100th Annual meeting, or witness American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell, at the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale. 

I just returned from a Director’s/Trustee’s breakfast where Chairman’s Circle members Mike Jackson (AutoNation), Craig Grant (PNC Bank), and Director Irvin Lippman, (Museum of Art), welcomed a group of more than 100.  It was the second time for me to view the exhibit.  What struck me this time was the scope of work and creative genius of Rockwell.  The display is a solid sample of his work.  Rockwell’s prominence was fueled by his covers on the Saturday Evening Post, delivered to over six million subscribers, and is surely worthy of your time.

I’m convinced our Museum of Art is a jewel that should be celebrated, though my sense is it’s underutilized.  Community leaders understood the need for art and created a concentration of it along the Riverwalk.  All requires support and strong contributors.  AutoNation and PNC represent the best of our corporate benefactors.

Another great example is our Project 100 Team that has knocked the ball out of the park with its work on a Chamber facelift.  To celebrate their huge accomplishment and show off their work, their  “reveal” party called Amethyst, Jan. 29, 6:30 pm at the Chamber, will be a night to remember—everything from VIP cabanas to live music, purple carpet (100 year official color), valet parking, open bar, great food, networking…you name it, you got it!

Lastly, don’t forget to register for the 100th Annual Meeting at the Marriott Harbor Beach, Friday, February 12, 11:30 am.  US Chamber President Tom Donohue is the keynote and will surely discuss healthcare and job creation.  There are a limited number of sponsorships available on a first come, first served basis—contact dan@ftlchamber.com.

Sincerely,

 

Dan Lindblade, CAE
President/CEO
