The Business Retention & Workforce Development committee met on Thursday, July 19, 2018, at 8:30 AM. The committee is in the planning process for the next Early-Risers Breakfast Networking Event on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. The topic for this next breakfast is “Future Development in Perdido Key”. The confirmed speaker for this event is Environmental Programs Manager for Escambia County, Tim Day. He will be speaking on behalf of the Perdido Conservation Plan and the developmental cap that is currently placed on Perdido Key. Other speakers for the event are yet to be confirmed.
Feedback from the last Early-Risers Breakfast focused on Social Media, was fantastic. There seemed to be much interest in a follow-up workshop opportunity for members to sit down and learn more about their Facebook, linked in and google business pages. The committee decided to do a workshop focusing on Facebook for businesses hosted in the chamber conference room. Attendees will be able to bring their laptops and work on their Facebook business page as they learn! A tentative date for this workshop will be September 12, 2018.
Meetings are open to all members, their employees, and prospective new chamber members. Breakfast will be served, so please mark your calendars now! Plan to attend to enjoy some networking, meet new potential customers, learn invaluable information to help your business grow and hear about what your chamber is doing for you! Members: $10, Non-Members: $15

The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 16, 2018, at 8:30 am at the Chamber office. If you have ideas that you would like to share, or would like to take part in the decision making, feel free to join! The next meeting will be used to discuss upcoming Breakfast Networking events and planning next year’s calendar!
