Happy New Year of the Dragon. TBIBC Winter Networking a “Sold-Out” Success

Happy New Year of the Dragon to all TBIBC members, and of course especially to our Asian Chambers. This is considered the luckiest year of the Chinese Zodiac and  we hope that it will be auspicious for all our Chambers, members and for Tampa Bay.

The TBIBC Winter Networking Event was a “sold-out” success. Many thanks to the hard-working Board members who contributed many hours of work and organization. The Westin area was very flexible, allowing people and groups to flow freely, and for the event to exceed the planned number of participants, without being cramped.

The entire TBIBC Board and members congratulate the President of FRAMCO, Jean-Charles Faust, on being made a Chevalier  of the National Order of Merit (Ordre national du Mérite). The French Ambassador, François Delattre,  came to Tampa Bay for the first time last night to knight him.  It was a very moving ceremony. A French rear-admiral became a Commander of the National Order of Merit, and two elderly American war heroes received the Legion of Honour.

The IBB (our International Student Chamber) has offered all Chambers, their members and the companies they work with/for a great opportunity to join in the 3rd Annual Florida Student Summit on Global Business on 10 February. Please see http://www.tbibc.org/archives/588 for this free recruiting and networking opportunity.

The TBIBC will be taking part in an International Town Hall Meeting on 1 February. Please remember that all members of all TBIBC Bi-national Chambers are members of the TBIBC, and membership is free. Please contact Kathy, kacevedo@tampaedc.com, if you have any queries.
