Education Committee

This committee fosters communications and partnering opportunities between educational institutions and the business community to meet existing and future workforce needs in the region, as well as to ensure high quality of education for Palm Beach North’s students.

Principal for a Day

Principal for a Day is designed to help community leaders better understand the complex role of the school principal, experience the issues that a principal faces on a daily basis, and to strengthen business-education partnerships.

The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce Principal For A Day program is a one-day commitment during a week in late October. For more information, please contact the Chamber.

Recent Activity

The Education Committee seeks to 1) educate our members on issues related to, or concerning education, 2) promote education within the Chamber membership, and 3) promote business education partnerships. To support these goals, our Committee will held the 5th Annual Principal for a Day event October 22-26, 2018. We have tasked a subcommittee with exploring and developing opportunities to partner with the business community to provide critical STEM related equipment and resources to our local public and private schools. We continue to invite businesses and educational leaders to speak to our Committee to increase our knowledge and understanding of the resources available to our community. Finally, our Committee continues to support student interaction with the business community by sponsoring student attendance at the Chamber’s Business Before Hours events.
