Dear Current and Potential Members,
As the Chairman, it is with great pleasure to introduce to you the new and improved Netherlands Chamber of Commerce for South Florida Inc. With new leadership and direction, the New Chamber will benefit its current and future members in creating an environment that enhances economic opportunities, building new business relationships and help in facilitating opportunities for doing business in South Florida. Both Dutch and Local companies doing business together or relocating in South Florida can benefit from a Chamber that has an expansion of contacts with local leaders, networking opportunities, guest speakers on how to make the transition and best business practices in the Netherlands and South Florida. A good example of our efforts was when we welcomed Jan Joosten an international recognized corporate lawyer from New York City as our guest speaker, to talk about the differences from a legal aspec t for doing business in the US.
In October we will have our next Special Board meeting on Thursday the 29th. The next Business Networking Event will be in November, so that Members can meet with current and new members. I like to extend an invitation to all off you to attend the Business Networking Event Meeting in November, as well as, to follow us on our website: www.ncocsfl.org or on our Facebook page for more information.
The vision & mission of the Chamber is to establish a platform where the local, Dutch and international business communities meet, connect and generate opportunities for the overall success in your business and personal network. We are dedicated to developing, stimulating, encouraging and promoting a vibrant business environment,to help solve problems and support the membership through a pro-active and stimulating working partnership between the Chamber and you.
As stated earlier the beneficial affects about being or becoming a member of our Chamber is that all the knowledge, expertise and resources enable us to help and support each other in a way we could not do as individuals. We look forward to continuing the relationships with have already established and creating news ones in the future, for the overall benefit or our members and community.
