Chamber Intel
October 13, 2016
Message from the President
It looks like Brevard County was extremely lucky with Hurricane Matthew staying off shore.  I hope everyone has their business up and running.  If there is anything the Chamber can assist you with, please let us know. 

We are geared up for Battle at the Bay V, a championship boxing match this Friday night at the Palm Bay Community Center on Port Malabar Road.  It is a fun evening and a great night out.  Tickets will be available at the door at 7 p.m. or you can swing by the Chamber to pick some up.

Monday night is an After Hours Mingle with Congressman Bill Posey from 530-7:30 p.m at RiverView Senior Resort Living.  This event will include an update from the Congressman on legislative affairs along with a Q&A session.  Join us for appetizers, drinks and a lively evening of networking.  Have a wonderful week!
