Message from the President
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  We are excited to have Carol Craig, CEO and Founder of Craig Technologies as our Keynote Speaker at our Monthly Luncheon on Wednesday, August 6th.  Because of the volume of attendees that have been coming to our luncheons, we are looking to network from 11:15-11:40, then start the buffet line to get to the program before noon.
Don't forget to add the Chamber's Grand Re-Opening Celebration on Tuesday August 9th from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.  BBQ Events by Cindy will be setting up a smoker with tasty samples.  An add-on to the After Hours Mingle is a Business Expo on Wednesday, August 17th.  A tabletop is only $50 for members and a sponsorship is $100.  We will be hanging at the Crowne Plaza with a drink and appetizers and a beautiful view of the ocean. 

Finally, we are launching a new group called Business Women of Brevard.  It is graciously sponsored by RiverView Senior Resort Living on US1 in Palm Bay.  Come join this group to network, be involved with/as mentors, assist other businesses with our shared knowledge and experience, hear fabulous speakers, and give your elevator pitch.

Part of our mission is to help business make the connections they need to grow or find the resources they need to be successful.  The Chamber is a valuable resource.  Please feel free to reach out to us for assistance. 

P.S. There are three Poke Stops around us so pop in for a visit once you capture your characters!

Have a great weekend,

Nancy Peltonen
