There are many non-profit organizations serving the Miami and North Miami and Doral region. These are great avenues that represent causes such as children’s advocacy, the elderly’s care, the local business community, animal protection, and Miami’s less fortunate. They are the voice for the voiceless and the very soul of Miami.
The business community in Doral desired a leading advocate for their development in the North Miami and Doral areas. So they formed the non-profit Doral Business Council who has now become a central hub for strategic alliances and relationships to form with the community leaders and multiple local industry leaders. As a member, you can attend key events during the year, including workshops and seminars to enhance your business and your businesses professional network. From Integrity and Professionalism, to Teamwork and Commitment, the Doral Business Council would love to provide your business with marketing opportunities.
