Hyatt Regency Jacksonville RiverfrontSupporting Business Development in Downtown Jacksonville, Florida

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, with EverBank, Citizens Insurance and other large companies 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 Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, 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, Dr. Kristy Meeler, 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 hold drawings for door prizes and other items. If you have never attended a Downtown Council meeting, come out and join us to see what you have been missing!
