This special breakfast program is not a typical Chamber event; instead, we've created a high-profile, fast-paced and educational breakfast program specifically geared towards executives, senior managers, professionals, decision makers and other business people in the community. Good Morning SouthCoast! is one of the Chamber's most anticipated events due to the diverse topics discussed and the vital information they offer to the business community and residents alike.
Education is on of our most valuable economic tools and it is important the business community and leaders are aware of how the future workforce is being prepare for employment! Don't miss the opportunity to get involved and learn how students are being transformed into a motivated, intelligent and dynamic workforce!
The June Good Morning SouthCoast will feature Mr. Thomas Anderson, the incoming Superintendent of the New Bedford Public Schools as on of the Keynote speakers.
Come hear from Mr. Thomas about his vision and goals for the New Bedford Public School System as he meets our local business community!
