The Palms West Chamber of Commerce and Palms West Community Foundation checked off an important new year’s resolution in January. The two organizations are pleased to announce a new partnership with the famed Wellington resident and equestrian, Mason Phelps, Jr.
“One of our top resolutions for the new year was to grow our equestrian presence and to become a stronger voice in advocating for the industry that delivers $185 million of economic impact to Palm Beach County,” said Jaene Miranda. “In order to accomplish that goal, we needed a great volunteer leader and Mason was on top of that list. We are extremely pleased that both he and his organization are on board to help us achieve our goal.” Over the past decade, Phelps and his public relations firm, Phelps Media Group, Inc., International, have established a large, equestrian based network in not only Wellington, but one that reaches all over the world. Phelps Media Group, Inc., International is recognized as one of America’s most progressive and successful equestrian public relations firms.
Phelps has recently become a Trustee of the Palms West Chamber of Commerce, and he brings with him a vast range of knowledge and talent that will strengthen one of the area’s largest Chambers. “We are so pleased to have Mason Phelps join us as a Trustee,” states Jaene Miranda, CEO of the Palms West Chamber. “The insight into the equestrian industry that he brings to our organization is invaluable and we are looking forward to including him in our list of major stakeholders of the organization.”
As is his nature, Phelps has jumped on board at the Palms West Chamber… with both feet! One of the first projects that Phelps has offered to assist with, is helping with the Chamber’s equestrian committee. “Over the past few months, we have been forming an equestrian committee,” explains Maureen Gross, Director of Development of the Foundation, “to better address the needs of the equestrian industry here in the Western Communities. Now, with Masons’ knowledge and network, our equestrian committee will blossom and become a viable, strong alliance for the equestrian community.”
Phelps will also help tackle some of the philanthropic projects of the Palms West Community Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Chamber. One of these projects will be assisting in the proposed development of an Equestrian Visitors Center, as part of the new Palms West Chamber building located on Southern Blvd. “I am looking forward to helping the Palms West Community Foundation in their efforts,” explains Phelps, “and to having the opportunity to help them grow as a philanthropic organization in the Western Communities.”
“Mason Phelps and his public relations firm, Phelps Media Group, Inc., International are such a great addition to our Chamber and our Foundation,” Gross added. “He brings the talent and expertise that will certainly strengthen both organizations. We are all looking forward to a wonderful partnership.”
