Chamber of Commerce of Okeechobee County News


Chamber After Hours: Are you ready to talk fast, sharing some business and or personal information? Well get ready. Our next speed networking event will be on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 5 p.m. hosted by Guardian ad Litem. This will be a fun event where instead of speed dating, we will be speed networking! A great way for each of us to learn a little more about each person in attendance. We’ve had several of these speed networking events and they have been great. So much was learned about each other and their business. You will just use whatever questions comes to mind as you meet each person as you’ll only have 2 minutes with them before moving on to the next person. Your choice, just make it fun and informative. Don’t miss out on the fun, come join in the speed networking event! Be sure and bring your business cards and brochures. Looking forward to seeing you on the 25.

Our first quarterly chamber luncheon will be on Wednesday, Jan. 26, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at IRSC, Dixon Hendry Campus. Our luncheon hosts will be Steve Dobbs and Wes Abney.

We are so pleased to be able to bring you a sneak peek of the “Replace Okeechobee High School” project! Sponsors Steven L. Dobbs Engineering, LLC & Abney Building & Consulting, Inc. will present Okeechobee representatives from Morganti.
