Central Chamber To Host Mobility Lunch Sept. 14

The Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce will host an Economic Forum Luncheon on the topic of “Palm Beach County Mobility” on Thursday, Sept. 14.

The luncheon will feature keynote speakers Nick Uhren, executive director of Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization, and Dave Howard, chief executive officer of Brightline, who will give an update on the future of mobility within Palm Beach County.

With 1,000 people a day moving to Florida, Palm Beach County is preparing for the steady population growth. All Aboard Florida’s Brightline will be ready to launch by the end of 2017. The passenger rail service that will connect Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach plans to eventually extend the service north to Orlando.

Networking will take place from 11:30 a.m. to noon, and the program will run from noon to 1 p.m. at the Breakers West Country Club (1550 Flagler Parkway, West Palm Beach). Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are now available. Register online at www.cpbchamber.com or call the chamber office (561) 790-6200 for more information.

This event would not be possible without the support of sponsors Brightline, Mercantil Bank, Waste Management and Wells Fargo.
