Floridians know all too well that our state’s geographic location increases our propensity for catastrophic weather, and unfortunately, hurricanes mean more than strong winds and rain. Hurricanes also cause Florida’s property insurance marketplace to be far more complex than other states. For years, the Florida Chamber has advocated to better protect Floridians from the financial risk associated with our government-run property insurance entities. We have long-supported protecting families and businesses against “hurricane taxes” and making necessary changes to the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund (Cat Fund). We will continue our efforts to reform Florida’s current property insurance market. In the meantime, we encourage you to be prepared. Take advantage of Florida’s hurricane preparedness sales tax holiday, June 1-7, to purchase the items that will help protect your family, home and property. Click here for a list of qualifying items.
2019 Prosperity Leadership Program
If you are interested in becoming a member of the 2019 Prosperity Leadership Program, please contact Whitney West at Whitney@PBNChamber.com or 561-746-7111.
The mission of this leadership program is to educate and inform participants about the distinct characteristics that make Palm Beach North Florida’s Prosperity Coast. The program will focus on a prosperous economy, high quality of life, smart and connected region, and regional leadership within the 10 municipalities that make up Palm Beach North. You will attend presentations given by key community leaders and learn more about the diverse civic, economic and social environments within each area. Our goal is to provide a platform where current leaders of our business community will have access to elected officials, top executives and leaders, while becoming immersed, engaged and informed about our region.
Members will become educated on the history of each community, current trends and issues in our economy, as well as the growth and development strategies of each city. Participants will be issued a challenge during their initiation, which they will work collaboratively on addressing throughout the program. The class will then present their solution(s) to the Economic Development Committee and receive feedback regarding the viability of their proposal(s) from private and public stakeholders.
