A Welcome From The Chamber...

Working with the business community and its residents through the years...
On behalf of all the Chamber's Board Members, its founding and current members, I would like to welcome you to the Westchester Miami Dade Chamber of Commerce website. As you browse through its pages, you will find information about the first Chamber of Commerce representing the business owners of this growing business community, Westchester, in Miami Dade County. Our mission..."Building Business Partnerships and Community", has been as strong as when we first started in 2013. As the first Business Chamber created in Westchester, Miami-Dade, Florida, we'd like to invite you to visit our website and join us in our scheduled events. Once you get to know us, our dedicated membership of proud business owners, you will be a part of the premier and growing business association of this thriving business district.
We had three tremendous 2017, 18 and 2019 years, filled with wonderful events such as our monthly Networking Breakfast, our First Annual 4th of July Parade. In partnership with Brave Church, we hosted a great concert to gather supplies for the victims of Hurricane Maria, in Florida and Puerto Rico. Through our community service program, we spearheaded the collection of school supplies for “The St John Bosco’s Leadership Learning Program.” We are an active organization servicing not only the business sector but also the general community as well. We’d like to thank our partners University Health Care, GMSHRM, Medley and Sweetwater Chambers for their assistance in such a successful project. We would also like to thank the corporate sponsors and members that have been an integral part of the Westchester Miami Dade Chamber in the last 5 years. Thank you to Jose Garrido, our founding Presidentand current Board Member, for his leadershipsince the Chamber's inceptions and during his 4 year administration, 2013 - 2017. Certainly, the Chamber gratefully acknowledeges his contributions to the community.
Please feel free to browse and check all of our initiatives and programs; contact us should you have any questions or ideas you’d like to share. We look forward to having you as a member of our Chamber and to helping you grow your business network and opportunities. We're continuing to identify the needs of our memebrs and the community as we fight the Covid 19 battle. But we keep our hopes high as we look forward to better times in 2020 and 2021.

COVID-19 / OUR TAKE
As in the U.S., in Miami Dade County, it’s important that individuals stay informed and prepared. Everyone should follow the advice from the CDC, relevant state and local authorities, and health care professionals.
Public health is everyone's responsibility. Communities, businesses, entities and individuals can take measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The CDC has given advice on how families, schools, and businesses can plan for and respond to the virus, including travel information etc.
For the business community, the CDC has issued a guide for employers to respond to the virus. Recommendations include: actively encouraging sick employees to stay home, flexible policies that permit employees to stay home to care for a sick family member, and respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene.
The Westchester Miami Dade Chamber of Commerce supports these CDC recommendations and urges our members to adopt and implement these standards. Based on information by the CDC, the Westchester Miami Dade Chamber of Commerce is studying methods including virtual meetings and information on how to help employers and employees prepare for and address the impacts of the Coronavirus.
Please keep safe and should you need any information, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
