If I've learned anything throughout my career, it's the power of relationships. When launching my first company, Sudsies Dry Cleaners, I joined the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce with the hope that it would help me uncover networking opportunities. However, any member soon finds that an affiliation with this organization is so much more fulfilling than simply advancing a business – it's about the people. Throughout my tenure, I've been able to tap into the minds of the area's greatest industry leaders, whose shared experiences and best practices have marked my life both professionally and personally. My once-small business has now grown into several companies, but most importantly, my networking relationships have grown into friendships.
Sitting on the Board of Governors for 14 years, I'm excited to now lead and advance the Chamber's exceptional culture. I've watched this group evolve into an A-list team of passionate, dynamic people who all understand and are eager to answer the needs of its membership. With their support, I'll be able to drive opportunities and policies that benefit the organization, but also demonstrate our priority to foster a strong community in which businesses, residents and visitors can thrive.
Joining the Chamber has proven to be an invaluable experience and it's my personal mission to ensure the same rewards for our existing and future members. From the seasoned to the promising, each member has the power, through strong relationships, to impact and contribute to the development of this great city. As your leader, fellow member, mentor, learnee and friend, I look forward working with you.
At your service,
Valerie Rasken:Director of Marketing for Miami Beach Chamber

Join us for the Boston Sports Hack, late night edition. We will have a look at week 15 in the NFL. Where did the time go? Great time of year though, as the playoff picture comes more into focus. The Pats are playing Miami in Massachusetts, and we'll talk about that game and how the rest of the season should go for them as we head towards the postseason. Are you worried about the offense? Just how good is this defense? Lots of football talk, but we'll do some baseball too as moves continue to happen with the Red Sox and across the league. Join Felix and Annie to talk Boston sports, and bring your own random thoughts to the show.
