Each Septem­ber, the cham­ber se­lects a com­mu­nity ad­vo­cate who has gone above and be­yond to serve non­prof­its as a whole in Palm Beach County.

The cham­ber part­nered with the Hu­man Ser­vices Coali­tion to pro­vide ad­vo­cacy is­sues and meet in a work­shop ses­sion to se­lect the top two pri­or­i­ties in six ar­eas: chil­dren and youth, se­niors, health, hous­ing/home­less­ness/hunger, men­tal health and sub­stance abuse, and dis­abil­i­ties to non­prof­its. The is­sues are then pre­sented to the leg­isla­tive del­e­ga­tion at a sum­mit in the form of the Green Book which leg­is­la­tors then take with them for ref­er­ence dur­ing the leg­isla­tive ses­sion each year. The ef­fort has been highly suc­cess­ful in leg­isla­tive out­comes for non­prof­its.
