Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MIAMI - Nov 14, 2018 - Miami Lakes Chamber of Commerce began as the Miami Lakes Business Association, in 1971. After the incorporation of the Town of Miami Lakes in the year 2000, the name of the Association was changed to reflect its role in the new Town. It was primarily established for promoting local business in Miami Lakes and north west Miami Dade.
Recently, the Miami Lakes Chamber announced the 18th Annual Miami Lakes Business Expo to help in promoting local businesses and boost the local economy. The event will be held at Shula’s Hotel and Golf Course on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, 5 pm – 8 pm. This time the event will be in collaboration with the Town’s Economic Development Committee and will attract over 1000 businesses professionals from north-west Miami Dade. Magaly Rubio, President, Miami Lakes Chamber for four years and real estate agent for nearly 30 years, has been actively promoting the Town’s expo with her other female colleagues, Marta Diaz, Executive Director and Susy Kanner who manages a local printing business Sir Speedy Miami Lakes.

The Town’s Economic Development Committee which is responsible for welcoming new businesses, business retention and expansion of current businesses in the Town, is also actively involved. “We are very excited that the expo is oversold with exhibitors. We have had a massive response because of extensive social media promotion and online digital marketing,” says Charisma Glassman, Economic Development Liaison for the Town who is also a certified digital media and economic development expert.
The Town’s female business leaders have stepped up to promote the local expo. It’s 2018 and women have been the epicenter of the discussion this year. From running for public office to taking corporate board positions, women have stepped up their game to help their communities by being actively involved in public service. “We actively support female leadership in business and community,” says Magaly Rubio, Miami Lakes Chamber President and active member of Zonta Club.
“Women don’t need any help or prove themselves to be equal to men anymore. For many years we have had all necessary opportunities to excel in the business world, and now we are helping our business community as well,” said Marilyn Olazabal Ruano, who is the only woman on the Town Council of the Town of Miami Lakes, a Miami-Dade municipality with 33,000 residents that cradles nearly 2,000 businesses. Ruano has her tax practice for almost 20 years, most of them in Miami Lakes. She is a strong voice in the local community, opinionated and a role model for other women in business and public service.
The Town’s Economic Development Committee’s female leadership, including Andrea Rechichi Graham, VP Graham Companies, Elizabeth Coto, Real Estate Agent, Mara Falero, VP JetStream Federal Credit Union, along with the rest of the committee members, look forward to welcoming everyone at the Miami Lakes Business Expo.
