Chamber Intel

Message from the President
The Business Expo & After Hours Mingle last night was terrific, so thank you to all who attended. Another huge thank you goes to the Crowne Plaza for the wonderful appetizers and great setup.

Next Tuesday we have our Chamber Chat, so just a reminder to register at our webinar website to be part of this fun hour session. Shannon Gronich will discuss the "12 Steps to Creating a Power Bio", which everyone should have ready. You never know when you will be asked to speak, might want a job change, or have enquiries about your credentials.

Our Member Orientation is on Wednesday, which is not just for new members. The Chamber has changed significantly in the last 10 months and this gives you an update on all your benefits, the programs we offer, and how to get the most out of your Chamber membership. Cheri Smith will guide you through accessing your member webpage and provide opportunities to get more involved.

Finally, Business Women of Brevard has its first breakfast meeting on Tuesday, August 30th from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m. at RiverView Senior Resort Living. Please register for this event to give us an accurate head count. There will be a wonderful buffet breakfast provided. We will have a questionnaire to fill out that morning as we want to assist your business in its growth and want your input into the direction for this new group.
