Business community engagement plays a large role in the importance of professional development and making connections toward a new career or creating new relationships such as chamber appointees in Davie-Cooper City and Boynton Beach. In fact, all industries benefit from the groundwork professionals lay in one job, and taking those skills with them to another job, such as with Adjua “Maria” McGill, who joined Florida International University, from a hotel group; Mary Harris from one financial institution to another; and Jonathan Axler, who left one nonprofit to join another nonprofit.
