Chamber already planning next year

-A A +A
By The Staff

Wow! Where has the year gone? I can hardly believe that we are only four short weeks away from 2008! Here at the Chamber we are already filling the calendar for next year. A couple of important dates for you to circle on your calendar are February 7 and March 29.

February 7 will be our next quarterly luncheon with keynote speaker Dr. J. Gregory Gillum. Dr. Gillum, author and acclaimed entrepreneur business coach, has been selected from a nationwide search to be featured in the first edition of Blueprint for Success with best-selling authors Stephen R. Covey, Ken Blanchard and Jack Canfield. He will join us to share his insights and wisdom on human performance and potential. This is one luncheon you don't want to miss.

March 29 is the date for our 2008 Community Showcase. As this event continues to grow we need more space, so we are planning to hold the event at Shelby County High School this year. Watch your mail for more information after the first of the year.
