About The Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1974 by a group of Black business leaders out of a need for a strong organization that could objectively advocate the needs of a growing Black business community. To date, the Chamber has been led by four presidents, David Fincher 1974-1984, Dorothy Baker 1984-2004, Bill Diggs 2005-2013 and current President G. Eric Knowles 2014. Understanding that membership is the life blood of the Chamber, they have focused on meeting the needs of the membership by upholding our five pillars of service; access, development, procurement, advocacy and foundation.
