Message from the President
My message normally does not focus on individual nonprofits, but because of some last minute actions, St. Baldrick’s is looking for assistance.  My good friend, Tom Neidert the County District Fire Chief, has stepped in to assist St. Baldrick’s head shaving and fundraising activities for March 18th.  He is looking for donated baskets and items to raffle and raise money for children with cancer.  If you would like to help this wonderful event, please drop off any items to the Chamber and we will make sure Tom gets them.

I want to thank the West Melbourne Business Association for the opportunity to give an update about the City of Palm Bay and the Chamber at their luncheon this week.  I was also on Talk Network Radio with Radio Realtor Jean Newell and her program “Your Hometown Solutions”.  You can listen to the replay clicking here where I discuss what is happening in Palm Bay and at the Chamber. 

Next week is the Legislative trip to Tallahassee on Tuesday, March 14th and there were only two seats left yesterday if you are looking to participate. 

On Wednesday, March 15th we have the Entrepreneurial/Leadership Breakfast with Wayne Justice. Wayne carried the "nuclear football" behind Presidents Bush and Clinton.  He will have a slide presentation and discuss this high-pressured leadership position. On Thursday is the “Do’s and Don’ts of Networking” presented by Alan Kershaw. Finally, look for my weVenture Edge Column in Florida Today on Monday.  I discuss the merits of taking a vacation… Happy Travels!       

All the best,

Nancy Peltonen
