The New Leaders Taskforce has created a strong, exclusive group of young professionals directly connected to the public and private sector leadership of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council and its investors. The New Leaders Taskforce started as a loosely built network intended to provide new leadership opportunities for the community’s economic development strategy. It has evolved into a strong lattice that involves professionals referrals, professional and personal networking, community service and social friendships. The taskforce meets regularly with established and recognized local business leaders to learn about Miami and its evolution as a world city. The My Miami Annual Symposium provides a forum for leaders to discuss different aspects of Miami’s rise as a business destination and top city to live and work.
