Superintendent At Chamber Lunch Aug. 20

The Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce will host an economic forum luncheon Thursday, Aug. 20 at 11:30 a.m. at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach.

Titled “Preventing Florida’s Brain Drain,” the luncheon is aimed at uniting business and education for the purpose of retaining Palm Beach County’s brightest young minds to build a skilled workforce.

The forum will feature Dr. Robert Avossa, newly appointed superintendent of the Palm Beach County School District, as the keynote speaker. The event will also introduce the community to the chamber’s new Young Entrepreneurs Academy program. Economic development and educational experts will also be on hand for a panel discussion.

Tickets are $55 before Aug. 7 and $75 after Aug. 7. A portion of the proceeds will fund the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. For more info., call Martina Sanchez at (561) 578-4813.
