JAX Chamber’s 127th Annual Meeting set for Jan. 19 at The Florida Theatre

The JAX Chamber will recognize community business leaders and celebrate the region’s numerous successes when it hosts its 127th Annual Meeting on Thursday, Jan. 19, from 6 to 9 p.m., at The Florida Theatre in Downtown Jacksonville. More than 700 people are expected to attend.

The event’s theme, “Celebrate JAX,” complements the Chamber’s #ilovejax campaign on Twitter that started in 2011 and will continue throughout 2012. #ilovejax represents the ongoing conversation about the great things happening throughout the Northeast Florida region.

“Our annual meeting is a wonderful time to bring the business community together and celebrate our dynamic city and all of the positives of our region,” said Wally Lee, president of the JAX Chamber. “The strength of our community and its unique qualities make the region a great place to work, live and play.”

The annual meeting will include a memorial tribute to Bob Helms, Jack McCormack and Mark Hulsey, three individuals who exemplify the #ilovejax community spirit, enthusiasm and pride.

The Chamber will also announce the overall Small Business Leader of the Year award winner and introduce the Chamber’s 2012 Board of Directors during the annual meeting. The 2012 Chamber Chair is Tom Van Berkel, chairman and CEO of The Main Street America Group.

The annual meeting is presented by PRI Productions. Fidelity National Information Services is the platinum sponsor and The Main Street America Group is the “Small Business Leader of the Year” sponsor.

Tickets are $45 per person, $200 for a row of seven and $600 for a row of 14. To register or for more information, visit or contact Jennifer Maveety at 904-366-6675 or
