Welcome to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce!
OK. Let’s get down to business, because, after all, isn’t that why you joined the Chamber?
As the Chair of the Diplomat committee, I can start telling you about our over 170 annual events, our various councils, dozens of committees, leads groups, and more great stuff. You can read about them all on this website.
All very important. But if you are like most members, you’re here because you want to know how you can start leveraging your Chamber investment into REAL DOLLARS right now.
And for that, our Diplomat Committee is here to assist you with creating and implementing your Success Plan. Diplomats are members just like you, who volunteer their time, to assist fellow members.
That brings me to an important point: Success in the chamber, requires involvement at some level. While we hope you enjoy your new Chamber plaque, chances are, on its own, it won’t generate much new business.
Think of the Chamber like a fitness club membership. You only get back what you put in. And it’s all about members helping members. That’s been the "success formula" here for over 100 years and more then 1,400 companies.
If you are ready to start, we’re ready to help.
