Message from the President
A huge thank you to Bryan Price, owner of the local Jersey Mike's stores for sharing his entrepreneurial experience with us at yesterday's breakfast.  It is always fascinating to hear of one's journey to success.

Join us Tuesday for our last Business Woman of Brevard. In August we are renaming the group Brevard Business Professionals.  As always the group is open to men and this month we have Dr. Wanda Bonet-Gascot discussing how to deal with difficult people and situations.

If you have not come to a Member Orientation, please join us at the Chamber on July 26th from 3:30-5 p.m. while we go over all the benefits and opportunities the Chamber has to offer.

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 Senators Dorothy Hukill and Debbie Mayfield; Florida State Representatives Thad Altman 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 Representative TBD; Orlando Melbourne International Airport Executive Director Greg Donovan; Home Builders & Contractors Association of Brevard President Michelle Masline and Brevard County School Board Chairwoman Misty Belford among others.  Sponsorships are available for this prestigious event.
