Syosset, NY The Commercial Industrial Brokers Society (CIBS) of Long Island donated 16,000 bottles of water to the medical community and healthcare workers at two Long Island hospitals.
The donations were delivered to Stony Brook University Hospital and Northwell Health System’s Huntington Hospital. Anthony Parziale, president of Farmingdale-based The Advanced Group, donated the services of a truck to transport the water to both facilities.
CIBS was formed in 1992 out of the shared belief among the region’s leading brokers that the region needed a unified voice to advocate on behalf of professionalism, ethics and industry cohesion. Today, CIBS is a leading voice and advocate for commercial development in the area.
Since its formation, CIBS has helped upgrade the industry by offering hundreds of educational programs, seminars and presentations; advocated professional standards and offered grievance resolution; provided informal mentoring relationships; raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charities; and created social settings in which colleagues have become friends, and competitors respected peers.
