The Women’s Chamber of Commerce was founded by Thelma Gibson more than 20 years ago.  It is a multi-cultural organization comprised of women (and men) in all areas of business. The mission of the organization is the promotion of women in business. Our members include professionals in large corporations, small businesses, non-profit organizations, as well as educators. The Women’s Chamber of Commerce provides an arena for networking, education and leadership development among business, political and cultural interests within our community.  For more information, go to www.womenschamberofcommerce.org

WCC Hosts 26th Annual Thelma Gibson Awards


In 1999 the Women’s Chamber established the Thelma Gibson Awards of Excellence to honor its founder. Each year, the award honors an individual and a corporation that has excelled in promoting leadership, excellence and business development among corporate and professional women. This year we have added the category of Student Achiever, recognizing our future women leaders.

On January 21, 2009 Winners of the Thelma Gibson Award of Excellence will be announced at our annual Award and Installation luncheon. We are currently accepting nominations for each of the categories. Nominees must have a presence in Miami-Dade County and will be judged on their Leadership and Support of Professional Women, Business Excellence and Community Involvement.
