MESSAGE FROM THE CEO: Moving Business Forward

Good Afternoon Valued Chamber Member,

We are expecting a capacity crowd at this Thursday’s Annual Holiday Membership Breakfast sponsored once again by Roofclaim.com Boca Raton Bowl. The event is being held at Broken Sound Country Club and we have an exciting program for our members and guests. In addition to hearing from Doug Mosley, Executive Director of the Roofclaim.com Boca Raton Bowl, we will also hear from representatives from the two competing teams! Representing the University of Toledo Rockets is Head Coach Jason Candle. We welcome Coach Candle back to our community as the winning coach from the 2015 Bowl Game! Representing the Liberty University Flames is Robert Goodman, Associate Athletic Director for Marketing and Ticket Sales Athletics Administration. We look forward to hearing from Robert and Coach Candle as they share their strategies on how to take home the 2022 Roofclaim.com Boca Raton Bowl Championship Trophy.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement to start off your Thursday morning – we will also hear from the West Boca Raton Community High School Ensemble Chorus – featuring 28 members of their group performing holiday favorites. This breakfast is guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit!

The Boca Chamber is proud to partner with the Roofclaim.com Boca Raton Bowl highlighting Palm Beach County and all the special communities within it – especially Boca Raton where the game is played at Florida Atlantic University Stadium. The game will be held on Tuesday, December 20th with a kick-off time at 7:30 p.m. Airing on ESPN, the game will also be carried nationally on ESPN Radio and locally on ESPN 106.3.

Speaking of college football and Florida Atlantic University – Tom Herman has been named FAU’s new head football coach. Herman spent over two years at the University of Houston and four years at the University of Texas. FAU moves to the American Athletic Conference next year. Welcome Coach Herman and Go Owls!

Congratulations to Mayor Scott Singer for his re-election and Frank Nachlas for her election to Boca Raton City Council. Both obtained their seats without opposition in the March 2023 election. Councilwoman Nachlas was additionally appointed and sworn in to fill the remainder of City Council Seat A, which had been vacated. We look forward to continuing to work with Mayor Singer, and are happy to now work with Councilwoman Nachlas, along with all members of City Council, to ensure job growth and economic prosperity in Boca Raton.
