I hope all Lakeland residents and business owners/managers/personnel will consider attending the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce meeting at 11:00 a.m, Thursday, August 11, 2005 at the Stonebridge Clubhouse.
A primary purpose of the meeting is to elect Officers of the re-emerging of the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce.
Delories Williams, with the Memphis Regional Chamber of Commerce will speak on the "existing business" program, which is a key program to contact all exisitng businesses and having a frank discussion on what is both good and bad about the community. Lakeland hasn't participated prior to this since the existing business program was for industrial companies and Lakeland has not industrial companies.
However, the Memphis Regional Chamber of Commerce recently expanded the progam to include retail and service businesses and this program will become a priority for Lakeland.
If you are a business owner or manager or a Lakeland resident interested in a better Lakeland, plan to attend this important meeting.
