Frisco Chamber of Commerce: News to Note

ONLY ONE DAY UNTIL OUR “STATE OF THE CITY” LUNCHEON…HAVE YOU REGISTERED YET?

Ever wonder…how the City of Frisco approaches economic development and growth? How our city has been impacted by the downturn in the economy? How actively new businesses are being recruited? What the current economic trends in the marketplace are? How your business can influence upcoming legislation that will impact Frisco? How important our city leaders view sports, entertainment events, the arts and traffic influx? Then, take advantage of a great opportunity and register today for our “State of the City” quarterly luncheon, presented by our D-league basketball team, Texas Legends.

Join us at the Embassy Suites Dallas-Frisco Hotel, Conference Center & Spa from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Friday, June 25 as Frisco Mayor Maher Maso, City Manger George Purefoy, and President of the Frisco Economic Development Corporation, Jim Gandy address these issues and respond to questions pertinent to you and the business community.

Sam Roach, Frisco Style Magazine’s Person of the Year, will serve as moderator of the event, bringing his unique insight and thorough knowledge of Frisco’s past, present and future. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Collin County Community College Foundation and is a founding board member of the Frisco EDC.

In addition, Frisco’s own NBA Development League team and presenting sponsor – the Texas Legends – will introduce the exciting basketball, family fun, business development opportunities and affordable prices that it is bringing to Frisco. 

As always, we also recognize and thank our table sponsors for their continued support: BB&T, Centennial Medical Center, Cobb, Fendley & Associates, Frisco Economic Development Corporation, Mario Sinacola & Sons Excavating and Playbook Management International.
