HAVING FUN IS PART OF DOING BUSINESS
 
While we fulfill our mission as the leading business advocate in Central Florida, building partnerships, strong businesses, and a commitment to the community, we must never forget a core value of our organization: HAVING FUN.  People tend to do business with those whom they get to know socially, so most of our relationship building opportunities happen at social gatherings such as our monthly Business After Hours (this Thursday at the Ocoee Lakeshore Center), annual Golf Classic (Oct. 30th at Windermere Country Club), networking groups, BEST FEST, and our popular Elected Official Sing-Off.

Our Annual Golf Classic, coming up on October 30th at Windermere Country Club, is a great way to meet new people in a fun and relaxed environment. Even if you don't play golf, invite your best customer or a potential client to play with you. How often do you get four hours to get to know some of your business connections and truly build a relationship with them? The field is filling up fast. Reserve your space today
