Message from the President
Our first Business Women of Brevard was a rousing success.  Join us for our second gathering  on September 27th to hear Elizabeth Counsman.  This group is open to women and men that are looking to hear wonderful speakers, network, and get assistance to grow their business.  We meet the last Tuesday of every month 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.  We have two new sponsors, Buena Vida Estates and PIP Printing of Palm Bay so look forward to learning more about these wonderful local businesses.  Larsen Motorsports is located at 2495 Palm Bay Road East across from Harris Corporation in the old Intersil Building.  You don't want to miss this dynamic new group.
