Newnan-Coweta Chamber

Early Bird Forum set for Feb. 26

by Staff Reports

The Early Bird Forum held monthly by the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce will be held Feb. 26.

The 7:30 a.m. event is at Central Educational Center, 160 Martin Luther King Jr Dr. in Newnan.

As the saying goes, “Everything is marketing, and marketing is everything.” Companies large and small rely on effective marketing to drive their business. But what works?

The program at the forum will be a panel discussion featuring successful small, midsize, and large businesses sharing their marketing strategy, including what they’ve tried, what hasn’t worked, and what has made all the difference.

The panel of speakers will include Michael Lear, The Southern Federal Credit Union; Elaine Powers, Powers Heating and Air; and Sharon Szymanski, Canongate Golf.

Reservations are required. Contact the Newnan-Coweta Chamber, 23 Bullsboro Drive, Newnan, at 770-253-2270.

Also next week, the Young Professionals group of Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce will meet for breakfast at 8 a.m. on Feb. 28 at the Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity offices and ReStore facility, 150 Pine Road.

Are you 21 to 40 years of age? Enjoy a catered breakfast spread and network with fellow young professionals before you start your day at work. The breakfast event offers a chance to share your 45-second elevator speech. Reservations are required.
