BBC Friday 5 February 2016 – The New Community Logo, w/ Rex Oliver

RexLinkedInJoin us for another exciting mid-winter BBC Friday discussion, with our own BBC Regular and Chamber CEO/President Rex Oliver.

Rex will present the new community logo (not to be confused with the City corporate logo) and explain how to use it — and why it is advantageous for people to use it. (Rex on LinkedIn)


Formerly the President/CEO of the Murrieta California Chamber, a position he held for 10 years, Rex also served as the President of the Southern California Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (SCACCE) and sat on the board of the Western Association of Chamber Executives (W.A.C.E.). He assumed the helm of the HMS Bainbridge Chamber January 2012 — and a fine ship she be, arrr!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy maties, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
