Chamber Intel
August 4, 2016
Message from the President
August is shaping up to be a busy month. The three things I'd like to focus on are:

(1) Tuesday, August 9th from 3:30-5:30 p.m. the Grand Re-Opening and Ribbon Cutting at the Chamber. We have renovated inside and out and welcome members, friends and guests to come and see the changes while enjoying food and beverages.

(2) Wednesday, August 17th is our After Hours Mingle & Tabletop Event at the Crowne Plaza from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tabletops are only $50 and there will be drinks & appetizers along with music and the beautiful ocean view. 

(3) Finally, our new group, Business Women of Brevard, will have their inaugural gathering on Tuesday August 30th from 8:00-9:30 a.m. at RiverView Senior Resort Living. This group is looking to provide mentors, networking opportunities, guest speakers, introductions and become a supportive business group.

We have so much more happening this month with Ribbon Cuttings, Webinars, Trainings, Leads Group, Government and Legislative Affairs Group, Member Orientation and more. Please see our calendar below for more details on all the events we have this month. 

Have a great weekend,

Nancy Peltonen
President/CEO
