If you’ve ever attended a Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce Economic Summit, you are well aware of how much the area’s business community is thriving and booming.
And this year’s summit, which will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Doubletree by Hilton Campbell Centre at 8250 North Central Expressway in Dallas, will once again give economic updates regarding the east side of Dallas, but also provide opportunities for the business community to network.
The theme for this year’s summit is “East Dallas Works …” which showcases the community’s dedication to education, growth, the workforce, and development. The council members that serve East Dallas will speak, as well as others who will provide updates regarding the economy of East Dallas.
But you shouldn’t wait until next month to become familiar with the chamber — ask any member, and they’ll tell you you should go ahead and join now.
In fact, GEDCC did just that.
Even a brief perusal of their Facebook page shows the group is just chockablock full of networking opportunities and ways to get involved in the community, which is absolutely vital for business longevity (especially if you’re a small business).
At this year’s summit, the husband-and-wife duo of Bradley Anderson and Alexa Conomos, who make up two-thirds of the Anderson-Conomos real estate team, will be the keynote speakers.
“The Chamber, comprised of East Dallas community leaders and advocates, is thrilled to announce that this year’s Keynote Speaker will be well-known Entrepreneurial Power Couple – Alexa Conomos & Bradley Anderson,” GEDCC said in a press release. “Bringing years of experience and dedication to their careers and the business community, Alexa & Bradley will focus their conversation on their background, entrepreneurial journey, the transition/balance of having a ‘day job’ and an ‘entrepreneurial endeavor,’ plus maybe a few inside secrets on their life together.”
