We had 20 members attend an engaging Chapter meeting on August 12! Thanks to all who were able to join us. We did offer this on Zoom, too. Diane Michael, Callan Group Communications, sponsored the meeting, educating the Chapter on ways to “Use Digital Marketing to Attract and Retain Customers During Challenging Times.” For those who attended and for those who didn’t, Callan Group offers a complimentary digital profile. If your business is interested please contact her at Diane@TheCallanGrp.com. View all pictures on our Facebook page.

As always, our Chapter meeting is the second Wednesday of the month so the next one will be Wednesday, September 9 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Famous Dave’s, 12148 S Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers. Remember to invite a future member along!

Thank you to our volunteer President David Griffiths for presenting. Everyone needs to RSVP for this meeting by email or by calling Diane. It is free for members and $20 for non-members. Look forward to seeing you all then.
