Chamber Intel
September 1, 2016
Message from the President
Business Women of Brevard was a rousing success.  Thank you to all the women and men who came out to our inaugural Breakfast.  It is open to men also, so mark your calendar for September 27th at Larsen Motorsports on Palm Bay Road with a new starting time of 7:45 am for networking.  Once again Einstein Bros. Bagels will provide a fabulous breakfast and we thank them for their sponsorship. 

Buena Vida Estates has also stepped up to be a monthly sponsor and we look forward to hearing about the services they have to offer. 

Please call the Chamber if you would like to become a sponsor of any events as it increases your company's exposure in the community.

Next Wednesday is our Monthly Luncheon with keynote speaker Lynda Weatherman.  Don't forget to register before you enjoy the long weekend.  Be safe and enjoy the beauty of Brevard County.  Take a moment to think of how far we have come in the business world from the days of the industrial revolution.  Employees are the heart and soul of an organization...take time to recognize them.
