It’s finally here. Join your friends and colleagues today for the chamber’s member appreciation barbeque lunch. Almost 200 of you have signed on to help us kick off the week-long celebration of the small business community. It’s a week filled with networking, educational opportunities and culminating with the Small Business of the Year Award luncheon, where we will honor a business that has set the standard of success. Today’s lunch is happening rain or shine so don’t miss it. In case of rain, we will be just next door at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.
Our members belong to the chamber for different reasons, however all members should have the same expectation…that membership brings value and results. One business belongs because they find value in networking, another might belong because of the marketing opportunities that bring new business their way. Our programs are member-driven. Our sold out social media seminars happening this week are a direct result of our membership survey. There are still a few seminars with space available as well as our Small Business of the Year Award luncheon happening this Wednesday.

Another great celebration took place last week as the chamber’s Leadership Hilton Head Island-Bluffton class of 2012 unveiled their class project. Over 100 people attended the ceremony at the Island’s Mitchelville historic site. The class developed informational kiosks at the site allowing visitors to learn more about the rich cultural legacy of Mitchelville. It was truly a great moment for our community. The plans for the Mitchelville Project, like all worthwhile endeavors, are bold, visionary and worth working for to recognize the unique history of our Island.

Have a great Small Business Week!
