Suzanne Hollander gets “Linked into” Washington, DC, participating in Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce’s Lobbying Delegation and FIU’s Reception honoring Alex Acosta’s appointment to U.S. Secretary of Labor. Scroll down, learn how we “Linked into” DC and 5 Ways You Can “Link-into” Your Community!
Our Delegation met with Senators Rubio and Nelson, Congresswomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz & Ileana Ros-Lehtinen on Capitol Hill and the Departments of State, Transportation, Commerce, Labor and Homeland Security.
Like every community, Miami has important issues we want to educate our elected officials to help us with! We discussed the issues below, important to everyone who owns/develops real estate, rents, works, or visits our Miami community, a unique urban destination where more and more people come each year:
(1) Transportation Infrastructure Funding;
(2) Education Funding;
(3) Immigration reform/its impact on our community and market;
(4) Creating a Chinese consulate in Miami, and (5) Healthcare
Scroll down, check out the photos & read Suzanne’s 5 Ways to “Link into” your Community!
“Link into” Your Community #1 – Join a Chamber of Commerce. Chambers are made of up members of the local business community and as they say, there is “strength in numbers” to have your voice heard! Suzanne Hollander was part of a delegation from the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. Local Chambers of Commerce are all over the United States. Join a Chamber in your city, you will meet interesting people from many industries in your area and together have a loud voice to lobby your elected officials!
“Link into” Your Community #2- Celebrate Success of Home Town Heroes! Alex Acosta, the Dean of FIU’s Law School, and was just appointed U.S. Secretary of Labor! Suzanne teaches real estate at FIU’s Business School and like everyone at FIU and in Miami, Suzanne is proud to celebrate Secretary Acosta’s national accomplishment and the positive light it shines on FIU and our hometown, Miami!
“Link into Your Community” #3 – Volunteer for a Board. Cities and counties all over the country look for residents to participate on local government boards to help make important decisions. Suzanne is Vice Chair of the City of Miami Beach’s Affordable Housing Advisory Board. In addition to having a voice on how the City decides to allocate funding for affordable housing, Suzanne enjoys the network of dedicated professionals on the Board.
“Link into” Your Community #4 – Vote. There are local elections coming up in Miami and all around the country. Make sure to learn about candidates’ positions and use your vote to support the candidate who supports your issues. P.S. Political candidates are people too, you can meet with them and tell them the issues that are important to you.
“Link into” Your Community #5 – Stay in Touch. Stay in touch with the contacts you make! Suzanne Hollander loves to connect her clients, friends, business colleagues and students! Solid connections lead to deals, jobs, and opportunities in your community and around the world!
