The Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce have joined forces.
By way of background, the Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce (DBCC) Board has been working from a strategic plan developed in 2017 and 2018 that included vibrant rebranding and creating greater opportunities for our members through meaningful events, business connections and community outreach.
Our “north star” has always been focused on the need for regionalization, which provides ultimate connectivity and a wider platform for our membership.
After a great deal of research, hard work, and determination, the DBCC Board of Directors voted unanimously to join forces with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber oc Commerce (GFLCC).
Starting November 1, 2020, the DBCC became the Deerfield Beach Council (DBC) at the GFLCC and joined other prestigious and influential councils like the Downtown Council, the Council of Economic Advisors, and the Women’s Council.
According to the DBCC Board, this is the right time to consolidate with the goal of forming a regional chamber that will truly represent the entire Broward County business community (all 31 municipalities) and beyond. Dan Lindblade, the GFLCC President and CEO stated that “welcoming the DBCC into our family strengthens our goal of regionalization to better serve more businesses across an expanded territory.”
The other excellent news is that DBCC's Executive Director, Denise Jordan, became Senior Vice President at the GFLCC. Denise has also accepted a seat on the Broward Alliance board of directors. Along with her new responsibilities, Denise will continue to lead the DBC and follow our goal of creating the ultimate regional chamber.
