    Each month, we host Coffee Talk in order to allow our members to better meet one another and develop new relationships and opportunities. Coffee Talk is open to all members with an emphasis on learning more about our newer members. This is an informal and stress-free event - so feel free to keep your pajamas on with coffee (or beverage of choice) in hand. This recurring event is normally scheduled from 10-11 am (Eastern) on the last Friday of each month but may be shifted as necessary to avoid holiday weekends. The Zoom link to attend will be provided via email once you register on the website or via the Wild Apricot for Members app (iOS and Android). We look forward to getting to know you all better. Let's connect and grow together!

    The U.S. Small Business Administration has designated the first week in November as National Veterans Small Business Week. With Veterans Day just ahead, this is a great opportunity to talk about the many programs and resources that the SBA offers for veteran and military spouse business owners to assist them in starting and growing businesses. We'll be joined by SBA representatives in Florida who will also talk specifically about the SBA events happening during the week.

    Lonnie Koyama is the Lead Outreach & Marketing Specialist for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in South Florida. He has been with the SBA for eleven years. His duties involve fostering economic development with business organizations. In addition, he counsels businesses and connects them to resources to help them start and grow.

    Prior to the work with the Federal government, Lonnie had a long private sector career that includes extensive management and supervisory experience with several national retailers over an area encompassing several western states. He also served four years in the United States Marine Corps where he was honorably discharged.
