Advertising Federations Volunteerism Yields Deep Impacts on Space Coast
As we embark upon another holiday season and a season of giving, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the things that mean the most in our community and businesses. The Melbourne Regional Chamber wishes to recognize all of our partners — the entrepreneurs, businesses and nonprofit organizations who have helped make the Space Coast a strong and vibrant community.
We would not be where we are post-pandemic without the goodness of each and every one of our partners, ambassadors and board members. We are so thankful to have created platforms that allow voices to be heard, ideas to be exchanged and changes to be made.
This past September, more than 100 of our partners dedicated two days to support our annual Community Leadership Retreat, where we put the future of the Space Coast as our top priority and discussed ways we could unlock our potential through workforce, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Leaders interested in working together for a better future resulted in valuable discussions and actionable items. As a chamber, we are grateful to have a platform that allows our partners to unite and share their efforts.
And we can’t forget our hard-working staff — those who serve our partners and organize monthly networking and educational events while carrying out the Chamber's mission. They help to ensure that our pro-business mission moves forward while welcoming partners and shaping the future of the Space Coast.
We also are honored to have brought back our Pay it Forward Campaign, which gives small business owners and nonprofits the opportunity to stand in front of a crowd and share their stories, when they otherwise might not have had such a platform.
In addition, our “411 on the 321” podcast series has officially sold out for the remainder of the year and we can’t thank our community enough for their endless support of our Space Coast leaders. This media outlet has allowed our guests to share their philosophy and growth on the Space Coast.
As we continue to move forward and work with our partners, we couldn't be more excited to see what the future has in store for the Space Coast. We invite you to explore the many great charitable organizations in our community and to get involved with one or more. Make a donation, purchase their merchandise, become a volunteer or serve on a board. We’re all in this together.
