This BBC Friday April 1st we’re meeting in person at OfficeXpats. 8:00-9:00 (doors open at 7:30 for visiting, coffee/tea, networking). Two years ago, 13 March 2020, BBC went virtual.
Welcome to this first-in-2-years BBC 3D-spatial special event. This Friday, BBC Regular and Bainbridge Island Chamber Of Commerce President and CEO Stefan Goldby will discuss “Community Challenges: The Time Is Now.” Among many delightful local activities Stefan led community efforts to launch both the Bainbridge Strong campaign and the digital Bainbridge Island General Store. Visit Stefan on linkedin.com. PS. It’s reported Jason will once again be flipping delicious pancakes while multitasking on the computer-station exercycle. We do plan to have Zoom-in on the big screen for those BBC Regulars from distant lands. Zoom link will be in the BBC Newsletter as usual.
- Please note: if you are not already on the OfficeXpats member/visitor COVID-19 Vaccine Verification List, please bring vaccine verification (phone or paper copy) for a “one-time verification.” Also note: at this time masks are not required for in-person events at OfficeXpats, but one is certainly welcome to maintain self-masking.

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! Invite your friends and associates to join this curiously real, 3-dimensional event in real time and real space, and another delicious cup of BBC! Previous week’s meeting: vBBC_18March2022.
