Miami to West Palm Beach rated 78 out of 100 in a
recent Wallethub study of welcoming destinations for people with Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math backgrounds. This is a major issue for the
area, as it is these backgrounds that create and sustain innovation. The study
found an overabundance of low-skill, low-wage labor in the area.
This is not a good situation going forward, and should put
more energy behind efforts for change.

We are delighted to shine the spotlight on a distinguished member of our staff who by his or her efforts brings great credit to our organization. This month we are honored to salute:
When Larry joined our Chapter, a little over two years ago, he brought with him an impressive portfolio of 35+ years of executive leadership in the fast food industry, along with a sterling record of community service. And it hasn’t taken very long for Larry’s mentoring and leadership skills to reflect well, both for our clients, and the Chapter itself.
Larry quickly demonstrated his expertise working with clients, and he has broadened that base by becoming an Online Mentor to the SCORE national community, where he serves clients across the country by Skype and email.
In addition, Larry has established a new client Roundtable devoted to Sales & Marketing, which he expertly facilitates each month. He also has served on Ad Hoc committees, and currently serves on the Strategic Planning Sub-Committee, where his marketing knowledge will richly benefit the planning process.
When Larry joined the Chapter, members of the CTT commented on the impressive bios of the group he joined with. That observation has richly borne fruit, and we are delighted to announce that Larry has been elected Special Counselor of the Quarter for January, February, and March 2017.
Thank you Larry, for all you do. You truly have made us a better Chapter, and we all congratulate you and wish you continuing success!
