Growth and Opportunities Abound

Let it never be said that West Orange county is not on the fast track for growth and opportunity.  In just the past few months,Chamber Ambassadors have coordinated over a dozen ribbon cuttings for new Members in our area. It's not just that businesses are opening in the area. There have also been numerous anniversary celebrations and 'We Noticed' awards for our Members. These are all signs that this area we call home is teeming with opportunities for growth and prosperity.

One of the ways your business can grow and capitalize on a fantastic opportunity is at the Chambers's upcoming Small Business and Wellness Expo this Thursday. This public event, held in the center courtyard of The West Oaks Mall, will provide terrific opportunities for both the participants and the attendees. The event runs from 2:00pm - 7:00pm and is coupled with our Business After Hours  (BAH), running from 5:30pm - 7:00pm. RSVP today for the Business After Hours,
and don't miss the opportunity to possibly make over 100 business contacts at one event. Not to mention, you will experience fantastic food & beverage options from TableTop Catering and make sure to grab your Expo Passport for chances to win numerous prizes, like a 40" flat screen HDTV. The September Business After Hours is always one of our more highly attended events during the year and I hope to see many of you, both participating and attending.
