Message from the President
Next week is our Member Orientation on Wednesday.  If you have never come to this training, please find the time to attend.  I go over all the benefits of membership and I am sure most of you have never looked in your packet to see everything you have access to.  The next day we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Sendala’s in downtown Melbourne.  The ribbon cutting event goes from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m., so come and enjoy light snacks and refreshments will you receive 20% of your purchases that day.  

Plan on attending our Business Women of Brevard on January 31st.  We have a panel discussion on planning for a successful 2017.  Topics discussed will be planning & time management, decluttering your office & home, and overcoming roadblocks to success.  See below for more details.

Finally, we are looking for a few more Chili Cook-Off Contestants.  If you have a fabulous recipe and would like to compete for Best Chili of Brevard, we have celebrity judges: Palm Bay Mayor William Capote, Sheriff Wayne Ivey and County District Fire Chief Tom Neidert deciding on the best chili.  Join us on Saturday, February 11th from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Space Coast Harley Davidson for a fun day out.  

All the best,

Nancy Peltonen
