The Greater Fort Lauderdale
Chamber of Commerce

Cristina Agnone joined the Board of Directors for Rebuilding Together Broward in 2013. Through her previous work with the Broward Housing Partnership, Cristina understands the importance of the work Rebuilding Together does. Her job as the Director of Membership & Business Development at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce strengthens her understanding of being a connector and the need for companies to engage with non-profits.

Since joining the Board of Directors Cristina has helped the organization grow its relationship with potential funders and helped to create new partnerships with other organizations. Cristina has also brought many great ideas on how to raise funds for the organization, including a holiday fundraiser of building gingerbread houses, which will take place at the end of the year.
