A Message From Our President

The Links, Incorporated is an international, not-for-profit corporation, established in 1946. The membership consists of nearly 15,000 professional women of color in 286 chapters located in 41 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It is one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of extraordinary women who are committed to enriching, sustaining, and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.

Welcome to the official website of the Miami-Biscayne Bay (FL) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. On June 30, 2010, at the 37th National Assembly in Detroit, Michigan, thirty-one accomplished and energetic women were inducted into The Links Incorporated.

We proudly hold the distinction of being the first Chapter in Links’ history to be Installed and Charted at a National Assembly. During the past six years, we have had two installations of distinguished and dynamic women, the first one in 2012 and the other in 2016. Although we have had several members to transfer to other Chapters, we currently have a membership of thirty-nine dedicated women with diverse expertise who are committed to having a positive impact in the community by providing purposeful services through the delivery of our five program facets. We will continue to be driven by our theme: Moving Forward with Purpose, Passion, and Persistence, strengthening the bonds of friendship and service.

We hope you will find our website informative and we invite you to support us in our annual fundraising events to support our scholarship and programming.

Warm regards,

Carolyn E. Hazelton, President

Who We Are

On June 30, 2010, thirty-one of South Florida’s most accomplished professional women were inducted as charter members of the Miami-Biscayne Bay Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. On Saturday, June 14, 2014, we expanded our circle of friendship by welcoming eight awesome, educated and engaged women to our Chapter. On Sunday, June 18, 2016, we once again strengthened our circle of friendship and dedication to service by embracing eleven amazingly talented, socially conscious and community-minded women.  We are so grateful to extend our friendship circle with six dynamic, civically engaged and educated women on
