It is 8:00 a.m. on Friday, April 27th, as 600 people start arriving to take part in the Urban League of Broward County’s Grand Opening of The Community Empowerment Center. The 28,000 sq. ft. center, in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale, is impressive in its architectural design and reason for being. A cross-section of the community of all races, ethnicity and walks of life are present for this much anticipated opening, including people who have been served by the Urban League, politicians and business leaders from various companies such JM Family Enterprises. This is a project that began after several years of planning, but eighteen months prior to this opening, president and chief executive officer, Dr. Germaine Smith-Baugh, brought it to her CEO Forum group for discussion.
