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”
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
