CBIC’s Afterhours Passport Series Kickoff and 2011 Annual Meeting
You won’t need to pack your bags for this mini-vacation, but you will want to RSVP in advance as there are a limited number of seats aboard this party cruise, so to SPEAK!
Yes, CBIC and SPEAK! have partnered to bring the world to Charlottesville’s innovative tech and entrepreneurial crowd – a “staycation” of sorts with food, wine, music, travel-related trivia and prizes all while mingling with a savvy professional networking crowd! This is a series of three afterhours events over the next 8 or so months, each to feature the sounds, tastes, and sights of a different culture such as Italy, Germany, and France!
Guests will receive a “passport” at the events. Those who attend all three events in the series will be entered into a special drawing for a grand prize (TBD); those who attend 1 or 2 of the 3 will be entered into a drawing for a non-grand, but respectable prize!
While guests enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks, between 5:15 – 5:30, CBIC will hold its brief 2011 Annual Meeting. The purpose of the Annual Meeting is for members of the Council to: elect a Board of Directors for the 2011-12 Council year; receive the Chairman’s report on the State of the Council as required by the Bylaws; and transact any other business that may properly come before the Annual Meeting. All CBIC members are encouraged to attend and are asked to fax a signed proxy – download at www.cvillebic.org – on or before August 30, to (434) 295-3144, whether attending the Annual Meeting in person or not.
(PSST….In October, CBIC and SPEAK! will host the 2nd event in the Passport Series, which will be German themed, and in the 1st Quarter of 2012, France! Grand prize available to those who attend all three! )
