In such cases, the selected individuals come together to react, consult or deliberate. Past issues the Chamber has taken leadership on include securing the Miami Heat franchise, securing the Florida Marlins franchise and creation of The Orange Bowl Committee. Council Chair and Vice Chair serve as members of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
