Have you ever found yourself wishing you could attend an Operation New Birmingham meeting, but you were unable to make it to their breakfast meetings? Now’s your chance: Starting in March, the group will meet after business hours every other month.
According to The Birmingham News, the group focused on downtown development held its first meeting called “CityCenter505” on Thursday at Good People Brewing Co.’s brewery at 114 14th St. South. The meeting served as an update on downtown projects.
“ONB is well known for its Breakfast Briefings for government, civic and business leaders,” Interim President Fran Godchaux told The Birmingham News. “Now, we hope to reach out to those who can’t, or don’t, do early mornings with an evening event focused on providing information about what’s happening in the City Center and giving them an opportunity to network with others who care deeply about downtown.”
According to the article:
ONB officials said the aim of CityCenter505 is to give small business owners, developers, residents, young professionals and others who are interested in downtown’s revitalization a chance to connect in a venue that both inspires and allows for interaction.
Godchaux said breakfast meetings will resume at the Harbert Center on April 28 and will be held on alternating months. The other months will have CityCenter505 and different venues, she said.
Will this new schedule encourage you to attend one or more of these meetings? Why or why not?
