President's Message


2018-2019 President’s Message:

Thank you for the honor of electing me as your 2018-2019 MBA Tampa Bay President! We have an amazing Board of Directors and an impressive group of Past Presidents. We are looking to continually grow and make this year one the best. I have big shoes to fill after the job our previous president Cindy Maxie did but I am up for the challenge. As in every year my goal for this fiscal year is to continue our very beneficial educational programs and to focus on growing our marketing and membership recruitment/retention efforts.

Our team has scheduled some great meetings and events for this upcoming year. Some of our topics include: ‘That Sinking Feeling – Sinkholes!’; ‘Nathaniel Bittman and his Emotional Intelligence presentation’; ‘Dennis Black Speaks!’; ‘Affordable Housing Panel’…and more.

Sponsorships are available for all of our meetings and events, please contact any of our board members if you would like to sponsor an event.

MBA Tampa Bay is always looking for committee members! Let us know what committee interests you- help us take our chapter to the next level! We welcome all input!

Save the Date: November 7th will be our 34th Annual Auction fundraiser for The Children’s Home Network. These children have come from homes where they were abused, neglected or abandoned- the Children’s Home Network is giving them new hope for their future. MBA Tampa Bay has made a long-term commitment to help make their lives just a little better. We have a new venue this year that is going to be amazing. It is the Bryan Glazer Family JCC on N. Howard in Tampa and it couldn’t be more perfect for our event. So, please mark your calendar and plan to attend- it is all about the children!

Thank you!

Denise Drews, MBA Tampa Bay President
