The top honor of the night, the MRCC 2022 Impact Award, at Friday night’s 13th Annual Miami Regional Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala went to the City of Miami and its leadership. The MRCC Gala took place at the Peoria Showplace at Buffalo Run Casino and Resort.
Miami City Councilmen David Davis, Kevin Dunkel, Dwain Sundberg, Brian Estep with Miami Mayor Bless Parker and Miami’s City Manager Bo Reese accepted the award on behalf of City of Miami employees, staff, administration, council and the mayor.
Mayor Parker said, “I see a dedicated group of Council members who spend time away from family in meetings, and hours and hours taking calls. It’s all because they’re dedicated to our community and city. We do make hard decisions and always keep the best interest of the community first. We’re Wardogs and we love our community and our city. None of us do it for awards, but it’s nice to be recognized by our community.”
Councilman David Davis said Miami has seen a total of $110 million and more in private sector investment this past year including business expansion, housing projects, and new businesses and projects secured.
“Miami is on the verge of big things, and great success,” Davis said.
“This award is recognition for all the hard work, sweat and tears you put in every day,” Reese wrote in an email sent to employees and staff, “It is impossible to drive around Miami and not notice all the positive changes, activities and events happening. Your community has noticed and chose to recognize you!!”
Reese said, “Thanks to a dedicated Council pushing forward thinking agendas for positive change and a committed team of city employees with servant hearts, great things have happened and many more are in the works. It's so very exciting to be a part of this amazing team!”
The Miami Convention and Business Bureau staff and administration under the leadership of MCVB Director Amanda Davis was nominated for the MRCC 2022 Small Business of the Year.
