The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the new hire of team member, Kathleen Dempsey, Director of Community Engagement.
Kathleen Dempsey is a graduate of Florida State University with a B.S. in Recreation and Leisure Services Administration. Over the past 10 years, Kathleen worked as the Treasure Coast Community Outreach Specialist for The Corradino Group where she represented the Florida Department of Transportation on construction projects in the Treasure Coast, proactively providing vital information to key stakeholders and fostering relationships with special-interest groups, homeowners’ associations, and county & municipality staff.
Currently, Dempsey serves on the Board for the Junior League of Martin County as the Executive Vice President, overseeing the League’s operations and welfare.

As Director of Community Engagement, Kathleen will be working closely with our municipal partners and the various committees & task forces. This includes the Government Affairs Committee where she will be developing the Chamber’s legislative agenda, and the Disaster Resiliency and Recovery Task Force where she will be working with the municipalities and key stakeholders to support disaster recovery and resiliency in the region.
