With a few months remaining as Chairman of the Chamber, I am truly amazed at the programs and initiatives your Chamber has planned for the remainder of the year. We are heading into the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer full swing ahead with the annual Golf and Tennis Outing on Monday, June 8, one of the Chamber’s most popular fundraisers. July is a great time for outdoor get-togethers, and what better way to relax and connect with the community, neighbors, and business associates than at the Mid-Summer Marketing Showcase on Tuesday, July 14, on the Green at Palmer Square?
There is no slowing down in August when the focus of the Wednesday, August 6, Monthly Membership Luncheon will be on healthcare and wellness. We are pleased to support our nonprofit healthcare related members by offering to them a complimentary exhibit table at this meeting.
Moving into September our thoughts turn back to business, and what better way to reinforce existing business relationships and create new than by exhibiting at the Chamber’s Trade Fair and Culinary Showcase on Tuesday, September 29, at the Westin at Forrestal Village? With room for additional exhibitors and food vendors, this is one event you will not want to miss.
The year concludes on Saturday, December 2, with the annual Business Leadership Awards Gala at the Tournament Players Club Jasna Polana, where we toast to the successes of the past year and anticipate future prosperity. In addition, we are pleased to honor three exceptional Chamber members as the Entrepreneur, Leader and Innovator of the Year. In these uncertain economic times, your Chamber continues to be your support system, the platform for you to do business and connect and exchange ideas with your peers. I hope to see you at a Chamber event soon, perhaps even for a challenging game of golf or tennis on June 8th.
