Get in the game of business success

Now is the time to plot out the rest of the year and either get back on target or finish with exponential increases over 2012.

One of the ways to do that is to re-establish or create new relationships and the easiest way to that end is to plug into the Chamber's programs, products or services now.

This week alone there are six events on the Chamber's calendar that could make a huge difference in your bottom line.  On Thursday, join us at the Chamber's Jazz in the Hall, beginning at 5:30 pm, presented by AMC.  This event is especially designed for the small business entrepreneur with table top exhibits, food and drink, and outstanding drawings like a MSC Cruise on one of its newest ships--MSC Divina.

Four leads group meet this week where you can plug into the power of the Chamber network by working with other business executives to generate prospects for each other.  You can join a leads group by clicking here.

Social media, like Linkedin and Facebook, means business and is part of your Chamber's culture.  Our social media pages have over 1,500 members involved and can be used as a method to cultivate new relationships and learn about new issues.  These sites are directly linked to the Chamber's web site which attracts over 40,000 unique visitors every month with online sessions averaging over 30 minutes.

Make sure your marketing doesn't end there by participating with our new Interactive Street Map that will drive business to you with our strong brand recognition and growing audience.  Contact Steve Schrage for more information on how to leverage this product to your benefit.

On Wednesday your Board of Directors, Chairman's Circle members and Trustees will meet at the BB&T Center's Legends' Lounge to hear from "Tourism Czar" Nicki Grossman on the current state of the tourism industry and where we are going as a region.  From convention center expansion to an additional penny tourist tax, Grossman will cover it all from her unique perspective.

We will also have two councils holding luncheons with excellent speakers--Sheriff Scott Israel at the Oakland Park/Wilton Manors Luncheon, and Congresswoman Lois Frankel at the Downtown Council Breakfast--presented by the Fort Lauderdale Downtown Development Authority.

Lastly, on September 30, 10:30 am, at Chamber Headquarters, join us with congressional leaders Debbie Waserman-Schultz, Lois Frankel and Ted Deutch, as we review business and individual options related to the American Healthcare Act.  We will have representatives on site from the Small Business Administration and the Internal Revenue Service.

Any one of these opportunities could make the difference in your future, however, that will not happen unless you show up and get in the game.
