A Word from the Director:
We look forward to seeing you at our February luncheon this upcoming Wednesday at TOWN HALL ASSEMBLY. Abigail Bellio from Summersgill CPA will be discussing tax tips and changes in the tax laws including what your business can write off and what it can't. 

Our 8th Annual Charitable Golf Tournament has been scheduled for Thursday, May 2nd.  Please mark your calendars and keep an eye out for sponsorship opportunities and golf rates.
Finally, we would like to thank All Charities for allowing us to participate in their incredible event as well as our Chamber businesses who have contributed and make our involvement possible. Not only does this amazing event raise over $5 million dollars to support local non-profits, but it is also a great opportunity for face to face contact with potential Ocean Reef Club customers.
