Message from the President
A few years back Dawn Bittar, with 321 Plumbing, was a very active member of the Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce.  Sadly, her daughter Cathy passed away on Monday.  There will be a viewing on August 4 from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Fountainhead, 7359 Babcock Street SE, Palm Bay and a Celebration of Life Service on August 5 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Anthony the Great Orthodox Church at 4031 Aurora Road, Melbourne.

Do not forget to ensure your membership with the Chamber is current.  All those in good standing as of August 18 will get a free listing in the 2018 Business Directory and Community Guide .  We are printing 10,000 copies of the guide and there will be a digital version on the Chamber website along with the cities of Palm Bay, West Melbourne and Melbourne.  This is huge exposure for your membership.

Save the date for the Space Coast Symposium on Friday September 22, from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., at the Space Coast Convention Center off 520 in Cocoa.  This event features federal, state and county leaders providing panel and presentation discussions about the state of Brevard County.  This is a “do not miss” event featuring confirmed participants: Congressman Bill Posey; Florida Senator Dorothy Hukill; Florida State Representatives Thad Altman, Thomas Goodson and Randy Fine; Space Coast Economic Development Commission President & CEO Lynda Weatherman; Space Coast Office of Tourism Executive Director Eric Garvey; Port Canaveral Port Authority Chairman Thomas Weinber; Indian River Lagoon Council Executive Director Duane De Freese; Space Florida Senior VP & COO Jim Kuzma; Brevard County Commissioner James Barfield; Orlando Melbourne International Airport Executive Director Greg Donovan; Home Builders & Contractors Association of Brevard President Michelle Masline, Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey and Brevard County School Board Chairwoman Misty Belford.  Sponsorships and Corporate Tables are available for this prestigious event.    

All the best,

Nancy Peltonen
