The first meeting of the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce was held in 1969 in the Miramar Diner, with 17 members attending. Ed Minaya, then publisher of the Mirror, brought together 19 local business people and formed a charter to organize the Miramar Pembroke Pines Chamber of Commerce. Incorporation came on December 11, 1969.
As the Chamber membership has grown, a portion of our membership is derived from outside of the Miramar Pembroke Pines area which keeps us on the cutting edge of the regional concept. Thus, the Chamber added “Regional” to its name.
The Chamber is committed to continue to provide a variety of venues to assist the business owners of our region to become better businesses by becoming better business leaders. From its humble beginnings over thirty years ago the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce is thriving and is committed to helping our businesses thrive too!
