In 2013, The Miami Dade Beacon Council’s New Leaders Taskforce (NLT) hosted an inaugural Young Professionals Leadership Summit that gathered more than one hundred talented young professionals for an engaging discussion on the challenges and potential solutions related to talent retention.
Now in 2017, the NLT continues to build momentum by connecting young professionals to Miami-Dade Beacon Council past chairs and local business leaders. The group intends to create a channel for an informal dialogue between the past chairs and attendees. Following the mantra of “Why Miami?”, the group hopes to give young professionals demonstrative examples, vis-a-vis past chair breakout sessions, of the types of talent and success stories that have grown out of Miami.
The program will provide a gateway for young professionals who are newcomers to Miami, transitioning into the business community, or just looking to get civically involved.
