Everybody’s Schmoozin!

On Thursday, 50 Chamber members met for lunch and “power networking” at Brima. The Chamber’s famous Schmooze a’Palooza event kicked off it’s 2009 series with plenty of great food, fabulous contacts and lots of business cards! When members stood to give an overview of their businesses, nearly everyone introduced their company as “recession-proof”! We are so blessed to be in a community where our business owners and employees are positive and energetic!

Chamber board member & Trustee, Patrick Fagan (Fifth Third Bank) chose to use his 30 second introduction to share a reminder about the Chamber’s “Buy Lakeland. It makes good cents!” campaign. He let the group know about the board’s renewed focus on the campaign and their commitment to keep business and dollars in the Lakeland community.

Join us for our next event on July 9, 2009 at Mt. Fuji Steakhouse! Details & registration available in May…
