Send the future leaders off in style this evening

If you’re downtown this evening, the Birmingham Business Alliance is hosting a Summer Send-Off for those that have braved the heat and the rain as interns in The Magic City this year. It also provides them with a chance to talk with current young professionals about what’s keeping them in Birmingham and why these interns should return and become our community’s new leaders after they’ve completed college. The event’s going to be at Rogue Tavern and starts at 5 p.m.

While we’re in that mindset, kudos to former Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce president David Adkisson as he recently became the chair of the American Chamber of Commerce Executives.

The YP Expo turns 3

ypexpo2009Tonight more than 1,000 are expected at the Birmingham Museum of Art for the 3rd annual YP Expo. It will be a chance for more than 30 young professional organizations from throughout metro Birmingham and their memberships to mingle with each other and potential new members. The Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce‘s Meredith Davidson was recently interviewed by Magic City Living about the event and while there’s not time to register online for tonight’s event, which starts at 5:30 p.m., it is free and open to the public.

Today’s my Birmingham post deals with the question asked in the official press release for the event –¬†What’s next?

A local Tweetup group? Maybe…

A local user of Twitter has taken it upon himself to create a group on Facebook for folks in town who use the popular microblogging service. He’s also called a Tweetup for December 29 at Urban Standard from 4-6 p.m. So if you can escape work early that first day after the Christmas holiday, you may want to go on over, check it out and let us know how it goes.

BTW, We’ll have information about our first Terminally Happy Hour of the New Year (on January 8) available soon – plenty of time to wind down from the long holiday season.
