Miami-Dade Beacon Council’s own Dr. Jaap Donath, SVP of Research & Strategic Planning, took part in this year’s Miami-Dade County Days (Dade Days) in Tallahassee recently.
Commencing with the “World Famous Paella Fest” on Capitol Courtyard, Dr. Donath joined other attendees at the annual 2-day event including representatives from all Miami-Dade County municipalities (elected officials and staff), non-profit organizations and educational institutions.
During the Legislative Briefing, Dr. Donath spoke on behalf of the Beacon Council about Miami-Dade County’s thriving economy. In addition to the events and meetings organized by Dade Days, Dr. Donath had the opportunity to meet with Jamal Sowell, President & CEO of Enterprise Florida, Ken Lawson, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunities and several other state legislators from Miami-Dade County. He also attended the press conference by the Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC) where they announced this year’s Economic Development week.
