Have you experienced downtown Jacksonville recently? Not just driven through it or commuted to a job or appointment; have you experienced our Downtown?

Jacksonville is becoming a thriving 24-hour destination, especially with the announcement of Everbank relocating downtown. Now you and your business can share in – and be a part of – this dynamic growth by joining us in the Jax Chamber’s Downtown Council.

The Downtown Council holds regular breakfast meetings on the First and Third Fridays of each month. Registration and networking begins at 7:30am. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:40 with the program starting at 8:00am. We accept checks, cash, MasterCard, Visa & American Express. Our primary meeting location is the University Club, but our individual meeting announcements will contain the correct location for each of our meetings or events.

About Our Meetings

Our meetings begin with networking at 7:30 am followed by the meeting at 8:00. A typical meeting begins with a welcome from our President, Cynthia Farmer, invocation, pledge, committee reports followed by self introductions by those in attendance. The featured speaker for the day then has the floor to deliver what is always an interesting and timely topic based on current events followed by a question and answer period. Next we give away door prizes and hold a 50/50 auction. If you have never attended a Downtown Council meeting, come out and join us to see what you have been missing! The following photo gives you an idea of the location and setup at the University Club.
