Floyd Chamber Hosting February Membership Lunch Meeting

The Floyd Chamber of Commerce is holding its first membership lunch meeting of 2018 on Monday, February 26th at Noon in the Skyline National Bank’s Community Room. The lunch – with entrees from chamber member, Mickey G’s – is being sponsored by chamber member, Thomas and Wall Real Estate. The chamber’s proposed leadership program will be the topic of membership discussion at this meeting. In addition to chamber members, others in the Floyd business community are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to info@floydchamber.org or 745-4407 for meal planning purposes.

The Chamber’s 2018 meeting schedule alternates each month between evening board meetings and hour-long, membership-oriented lunchtime meetings, typically on the fourth Monday of each month. The board business items are eliminated/abbreviated at lunchtime meetings to include more time for presenting topics of general interest to the membership and for membership discussion. Lunch is provided by a chamber member sponsor for these meetings except in December.

The Skyline Bank Community Room is located at 203 Oxford Street in Floyd. Guests can park in the courthouse parking lot at the corner of Rt8/Locust St. and Oxford Street. The Community Room is in the brick building just off the parking lot opposite the Rt. 8 side of the parking lot. A concrete ramp leads to the front door of the Community Room, accessed from the parking lot.
