United Way of Miami-Dade’s Tocqueville Society hosts a monthly breakfast series designed exclusively for its members, titled First Tuesday. Introduced last spring, the events give an opportunity for Tocqueville members to connect with one another, network and broaden their personal and professional circles. Speakers like W. Allen Morris of The Allen Morris Company; Stephen Owens, president of Swire Properties Inc, developer of Brickell City Centre; Nitin Motwani of Miami Worldcenter; and Jeff Berkowitz, president and founder of Berkowitz Development Group, developer of SkyRise Miami, have joined the group to offer details about their projects and their visions for the Miami of tomorrow.

Tocqueville Society cabinet co-chairs Alan T. Dimond of Greenberg Traurig and Bill O’Dowd of Dolphin Entertainment hosted the most recent First Tuesday Breakfast on March 3, which featured Craig Robins, president and CEO of DACRA. Robins discussed the growth and transformation of Miami’s Design District highlighting his many projects with DACRA, always working to improve and enhance our community. He also shared his creative vision for the future of Miami, giving insight on a few new and exciting developments to come.

“The Miami Design District has always realized the importance of community,” said Robins. “We have viewed the District as a great creative laboratory and have committed to investing in collaborators in art, architecture and design. Similarly, the mission of United Way of Miami-Dade has been to foster community through a commitment to its resources and people. It is by the strength of our mutual dedication to this mission that we are able to achieve success.”

Like the name suggests, these breakfasts are held on the first Tuesday of every month, from 7:45 am to 9 am, and are typically held at the United Way of Miami-Dade, although DACRA generously sponsored and hosted the most recent breakfast. While the gathering is somewhat informal, allowing ample time for members to interact with one another, guest speakers are invited to offer commentary on pertinent community issues, key takeaways for success, insight on their respective industries, etc. Concurrently, the Tocqueville members have the opportunity to connect with these speakers at a one-on-one level and offer their assessments on how we can build a stronger Miami-Dade for all.
