PRLog - June 16, 2011 - PALM BAY, Fla. -- According to Stuart Borton, chairman of the board, in February 2010 a severe wind storm damaged the exterior sign at the Chamber located on US1 in Palm Bay prompting the chamber staff and board of directors to review the current logo that had been in existence for 23 years.

“We wanted to remove the name from the circle,” stated Borton. “yet keep the overall look and feel of the original logo. After reviewing about a dozen ideas from chamber members and local artists, the board voted on the new logo.”
Chamber member 360 Communications began working on the project last summer and submitted ten versions to the executive committee who narrowed the field down to two. Those two were then presented to the full board of directors who voted on a final version.
“Our new logo represents the colorful community we live in that is so rich in diversity,” stated Vicki Northrup, president and CEO. “While keeping the sun, waves and palm trees so the community will be able to recognize and identify who we are, the artist was able to capture a more innovative and modern version of the original logo.”
The Chamber meets the first Wednesday of each month at the Life Care Center of Palm Bay at 175 Villa Nueva Ave NE off Malabar Road, just west of Palm Bay Hospital. Networking begins at 11:15 with lunch and program starting at noon. Cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members or at the door.
