Chairman's Corner

The Brookhaven Chamber is proud to welcome the Honorable Karen Handel, Sixth District Congresswoman, as our August 16th breakfast speaker. Her presentation will include current Sixth District news items, tax reform issues and the epidemic opioid crisis facing our communities.  Reserve your seat NOW before this event sells out. 
 
In a continuing effort to add value to our membership, we have been working with the City to develop a “New Business Welcome Kit" to distribute to companies as they apply for a Brookhaven business license. The “Kit” will include a custom Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce tote bag; various City of Brookhaven branded items and most importantly, a list of Chamber members that can provide services for the new businesses. It is our hope that this effort will result in increased traffic for our membership.   Chamber membership literature and applications will be included as well. 
 
This is a prime opportunity for our members to highlight their businesses and offer a discount, if desired. We highly recommend contacting the Chamber if you have a discount you would like to offer new businesses as well as any sort of marketing items or brochures you would like us to include in the Welcome Kit.
 
This program should begin in early fall so please contact us now with your new business discount and marketing materials.

About Miles for Cystic Fibrosis:
 
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a progressive, life shortening genetic disease. People living with CF must battle many serious symptoms, including difficulty breathing and digesting food. 
 
All race proceeds benefit Miles for Cystic Fibrosis, a locally based non-profit dedicated to helping children and adults living with cystic fibrosis enjoy longer, stronger lives. The Miles for CF BreatheStrong program provides exercise grants for individuals with CF to encourage healthy physical activity. See our website at milesforcf.org for more information.
