you to all the attendees that joined us in honoring the past year and
celebrating the incoming Board of Directors. The Luncheon was well
Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to meet the new board
members and socialize with each other. There was also plenty of time for
informal networking with other area business people and for welcoming some
of our newest chamber members.
In addition, the Chamber honored their own with The Phyllis
Ellis Memorial "Giver Award" going to Jenn Beaumont with AIG and
The Outstanding Chamber Member Award going to Daniel Moran with Fix My
Computer On Site.
Then came the swearing in of the Officers and Directors for
the incoming Board of Directors conducted by Earl Meyer with MeyerTeam
Business Coaching, Inc. This always fills the room with awe at the sheer
magnitude of the responsibility being accepted by volunteers willing to
serve in the North Tampa Chamber.

businesses and community through the North Tampa Chamber of Commerce. Your
