Thankful that Hurricane Season is almost over and the “Canes” are undefeated! These storms could have been much worse and thankfully our city fared rather well. So, now we move forward; towards the end of the year, where hopefully we have met every challenge head on. The LAAIA has been busy preparing for this holiday season. Some committees are closing out the year and others are just getting started…our Convention Committee is busy planning for next year already. The Charity Committee is wrapping up their annual fundraiser for Holtz Children’s Hospital. We will present them with their check at our Holiday Gala on Friday, December 1st at the Knights of Columbus in Coral Gables (Click Here To Register) and our Legislative Committee is gearing up for the Fly-in, in January to fight the good fight in Tallahassee! Personally, I am grateful for my amazing family and grandkids that keep me going and all my great business associates that I continue to network with by being a part of this Association.
