Wendy King received the 2008 Small Business Leader of the Year Award from the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce for outstanding leadership in the community. The organization's mission is to enhance the marketability and profitability of members and to be the voice of business.
Through the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce, King chairs Leadership Coral Springs, a seven-month program that offers a curriculum to develop community leaders. Members learn how the city operates, and King works with a day captain to organize tours of its various departments and facilities.
"It's almost like a backstage pass to the city, behind the scenes and learning the ins and outs," King said.
