Letter from the Chairman February 14, 2012

 The Forbes and Bloomberg Business-week lists are great sources, but for me, some of the greatest business inspirations come from our very own backyard. This was recently evident during the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Champions of Business Award luncheon. Here at the Chamber, we’ll all about hard work, but also recognition of the accomplishments reaped from that hard work. This year’s awardees included:

* Aletha Player, of FPL, who received the annual James McDonnell Outstanding Board of Governor Award

*  Warren Zinn, Owner of Warren Henry Auto Group, who received Aaron B. Perry Innovation in Business Award

*  The Shockett Family, who accepted the Past Chair Award in recognition of William “Billy” Shockett, Past Chairman of the Chamber Board from ’82-’83.

Furthermore, the Chamber introduced the first annual 2012 Warren Henry Small Business of the Year Award in honor of a business owner who has grown his/her company over the years, while maintaining an ever-important strong presence in giving back to the community. Carefully selected by our Chairman’s Circle, this year’s winner was Brian Scheinblum, the Co-founder and President of Cambean Hospitality. As owner of the Carlton, Clifton, Majestic, and Lords South Beach at Nash hotels, Brian’s work through Cambean is so important in helping to maintain the glamour and attraction of our Art Deco District for tourists and Miamians alike.

In true Chamber fashion, the sold-out event demonstrated our utmost support for these exceptional individuals. In addition, Past Chairmen Aaron B. Perry, Alan Randolph, Michael Milberg, Gerald Schwartz, Ira Giller, Anthony ”Tony” Noboa, Bart S. Golberg, Leon A. Manne, and Lucia Dougherty, along with Past President and CEO of the Chamber, Bruce Singer, were all in attendance to further champion the organization they helped build.

It is a privilege to have such strong leaders not only within our community, but within the Chamber family. We have much to learn from them and I pledge Chamber support to help them – and you – further expand their/your businesses within Miami and beyond. Congratulations and well-deserved!

At your service,

Jason Loeb

Letter from the Chairman Feb. 3, 2012

A little while back, I announced the formation of the Chairman Circle, a group of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce’s most avid financial supporters. In return for their generous donations and commitment, we are proud to have them represent the Chamber at key meetings with top influencers. The Chairman Circle has been active for only two months, yet has already made incredible progress on behalf of our city. Just recently, the council organized a trip to  Tallahassee to discuss pertinent Miami Beach business issues directly with Florida State Representatives. Among the topics were transportation, including the expansion of 395 Causeway and creating an entrance to the Express Land from I-195; re-nourishment of our beaches; continued improvement of our education system; and the hot topic of casino gambling in Miami-Dade.

The series of meetings commenced with Brad Swanson, Vice President of the Florida Chamber, who briefed the Chairman’s Circle about recent State developments. The unemployment rate has dropped to 9.9%, the lowest in two years. Though we still have a long way to go, this is hopefully the pivot point towards full recovery. Swanson also spoke about the no fault “personal injury protection” in the state of Florida, along with the proposed casino gaming, confirming that the Florida Chamber is opposed to the expansion of gambling in the state, particularly the development of Las Vegas style casinos and gambling cafes.

The following meeting was held with former Miami Beach Commissioners Representative Luis Garcia and Representative Richard Steinberg about the Miami Beach Chamber’s commitment to renovating the Miami Beach Convention Center and re-nourishment of the sand on South Beach. Both were pleased with our progress and pledged their support. Dialogues continued with Representative Marti Coley and Representative Cynthia Stafford surrounding the  improvement of our public education system. We learned that the funding per student has actually increased by 2.27% over last year. As education is such an important, yet underfunded sector, it is promising to know that our leaders in Tallahassee are dedicated to the students in Miami-Dade County.

This is just a peek into what occurred in the span of the trip and encourage you to talk to your fellow members to learn more. I am so proud of these Chamber members for taking it upon themselves better both the economy and tourism of Miami Beach. Their dedication to take their charge outside the local community and make our needs known at the Capitol level is so important in developing the necessary alliances, impact and support to really make positive change occur.

Well done!

At your service,

Jason Loeb
