Kick off the new year with "The Economic Consequences of Taming Inflation."

Good Morning Space Coast will return Thursday, January 12th from 7:45-9:30 a.m. at The Tides 1001 N. Hwy A1A Patrick SFB. Join us for breakfast and hear from keynote speaker, James Camp, Managing Director of Fixed Income and Strategic Income at Eagle Asset Management. 


The Federal Reserve has a difficult job in front of them.  If they don’t get inflation under control, the long-term impact will have a dramatic impact on the consumer. If they raise rates too much, the impact on the economy might be severe.  Come listen to James Camp’s insight to see if the Federal Reserve gets it correct.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast and the Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism have partnered to develop a unified brand for Brevard County.


We invite you to participate in a community-wide survey to provide input on what defines Florida’s Space Coast.

'Tis The Season to Give Back!

As we embark on the season of giving thanks, the Melbourne Regional Chamber has created an opportunity for our partners to "Pay It Forward". Have you ever wanted to help a small business owner or nonprofit get in front of a crowd and give them a chance to share their story?

Our Pay It Forward Campaign allows partners that may not be able to afford sponsorships the opportunity to get in front of a room where they can shine and share their message to the appropriate audience. 

We are currently seeking donors, so if you are interested in helping a small business or nonprofit in need, please contact Michael Ayers, for more information.
