Next BBC will be in-person at OfficeXpats on April 1st, 8:00-9:00 (doors open at 7:30 for visiting, coffee/tea, networking). Welcome to this first in 2 years BBC 3D-spatial event. BBC Regular and Bainbridge Island Chamber Of Commerce President & CEO Stefan Goldby will join us to discuss “current community challenges – recovering and moving ahead.” PS.
