Dear KBA Member,



What an exciting couple of months we have had! A fabulous Taste of Kennesaw in early September, a great Alive After 5 at California Dreaming (joined by Crosswater Filtration and Dr. Hester as co-sponsors), practicing our tailgating for KSU football next year! Fifth Tuesday’s, Wake-Up KBA: the networking opportunities for this 350+ member organization can occasionally melt my Outlook Calendar…


October is as equally action-packed, starting with our luncheon on October 14, where we will hear from media expert Rutland Walker. Unfortunately the Alive After 5, sponsored by Loud Security and LGE Credit Union is cancelled due to the impending lousy weather.


October also kicks off the season of giving, at least on our calendar. David Kapchinske will be talking about our partnership program with the Shilo Food Pantry, and will be issuing his annual challenge for donations to feed the pantry’s hungry at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Also in October, the annual “Haunt” networking event at 6 Flags! Come out to 6 Flags on October 21st. Register and check out the event at www.cobbafterhours.com.


Our November calendar promises to be as busy as October, with the Education Committee coming to the forefront again, this time feeding the teachers and staff at Hayes Elementary on Nov. 4th, followed by KBA’s second Upbeat program (a KBA trade fair specifically for the Cobb County School System) at NorthStar Church on November 11th.


Business of the Year finalists will be announced tomorrow at the luncheon, so stay tuned for that information!


Finally, the Cobb County Coalition of Business Associations (the folks responsible for the Summer Jam networking event) will be having its annual golf outing on Monday, October 27th at Brookstone Country Club. If your target audience includes members of these business associations, please contact Richard Block at drgolf.ga@gmail.com for more information about sponsoring this golf grudge match between the Cobb County business associations! The beneficiary of the proceeds from the event is the Cobb County Fire Department annual dinner.
