Message from the President
If you missed the "True Colors" training by Debbie Goode yesterday, it was a wonderful and enlightening breakfast networking event. We will schedule Debbie back next year to provide another great training.

The Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce will be closed July 4th so make sure you register for our monthly luncheon on July 6th. Stockton Whitten, the Brevard County Manager, will be providing us with an update on the county. You will not want to miss his enlightening keynote presentation.

Friday is our Government and Legislative Affairs (GALA) committee meeting. This meeting is open to everyone and we welcome your participation.

Finally, we have a number of volunteers for the Painting Party on Saturday July 9th. We need help on Friday to tape off the building. We will be providing breakfast and lunch for volunteers on Saturday. If you are able to donate your time, talents, or painting equipment, please let us know.

Have a Great 4th of July & Be Safe!

Nancy Peltonen

You will learn how other organizations are marketing on Twitter, some dos and don'ts of using Twitter, as well as tips on how to tell if your social media activity on Twitter is working!
