North Miami Council Sets Date for Women in Business Expo

The North Miami City Council recently convened to address a series of upcoming community events, with the scheduling of a Women in Business Expo and a health and wellness conference taking center stage. The council decided to hold the expo on April 6th, avoiding a clash with Easter weekend, and settled on June 1st to host the health and wellness conference, coinciding with the first day of LGBTQ Pride Month.

During the meeting, the council grappled with the planning and logistics of several key events that would involve community engagement. The importance of the event was underscored by the council’s effort to avoid scheduling conflicts and ensure maximum community participation. The selected date, April 6th, was chosen after careful consideration of holiday schedules and the potential for increased turnout.

In addition to the expo, the council discussed the coordination of a health and wellness conference. This event aims to educate and engage the public on various topics, including medical behavior, finance, and sports. While there was some initial disagreement on the date, with June 15th (the day before Father’s Day) and June 1st being considered, the council members reached a consensus on June 1st. The date not only avoids a clash with Father’s Day but also aligns with the start of LGBTQ Pride Month, which could provide a platform for additional inclusivity within the event.

The council also addressed the financial aspects of the health and wellness conference, focusing on budget allocations for decor, photography, and presenter certificates.

Another item on the agenda was the proposal of a joint meeting with the Miami-Dade County Commission for Women. The logistics of this collaboration were debated, including the meeting’s duration, reception details, and the creation of an event registration link. Even as some council members expressed concerns about scheduling conflicts, there was a shared interest in facilitating this partnership to enhance the city’s engagement with county-level initiatives.

The joint meeting with the Commission for Women was proposed for either March 19th or 20th. However, confusion arose regarding the exact timing, with different members suggesting 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. start times. The possibility of the Board of Adjustments moving their meeting to accommodate the joint session was also discussed.

Further discussions included the activities of various subcommittees such as community engagement, social media, advocacy, policy, and health and wellness. The absence of minutes from the previous meeting caused some confusion about prior decisions and discussions.

The council also acknowledged the need to clarify the replacement for the communication liaison, a role critical to the council’s interaction with the public and media. This position’s vacancy underscores the necessity of a point person for communication, especially in the lead-up to community events.

The meeting concluded with a motion to adjourn, but not before a review of upcoming events and their implications for the city. Although the summaries provided do not specify which council members were present or their exact statements, the discussions reflect a collective effort to address the city’s social and economic development through strategic planning and inclusive event scheduling.
