Due to impending storms, we have rescheduled this Wednesday's GAMBA Luncheon to April 4th. All registrants from the original date have been transferred to the April 4th event.

We'll discuss new strategies, services, and events to come in the next year, based on member feedback during our Round Table Series. We'll show you how to best use the features of your membership, how to better connect to the community, and of course, we'll have some lunch. 
Should you choose to attend just one GAMBA event this year, this is the one!

NEXT WEEK!
Fairmount/Brewerytown Developers, Realtors, Businesses Happy Hour
 
In January, developers and business owners gathered to discuss how to collectively advocate for development that results in improved quality of life for all neighbors. One immediate step that was identified was to connect local realtors, developers, and business owners with one another so they can identify areas of mutual interest and understand the unique services, products, and dining options available along the West Girard Avenue commercial corridor and beyond. 

Whether you run a small business, sell/rent homes, or build in Brewerytown/
Fairmount, join us for an informal meet n' greet to hear and learn from one another. Light refreshments will be available, connections will be made.
For our developer and broker community, consider becoming a sponsor of this event to help offset the cost of our new "New Neighbor Resource Packet" and to receive special recognition during the event. These packets will include information about the small business community and tips for new residents to become involved with their local civic groups.

When:  Thursday, March 29th, 4-6pm
Where:  1401 N. Corlies St
(near 30th & Master) 
RSVP:  Register Here
