KEY PROGRAMS Community Spirit Awards Luncheon:
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.
