Make time for the luncheon on
Open and Uncensored: A Real Discussion of Legislative Issues Impacting Frisco
and the North Texas Region
Wednesday, October 19, 2016
Embassy Suites Frisco
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
FRISCO CHAMBER: “In January 2017, the Texas Legislature will begin its 85th Session. In our fast growing region, we are seeing the tension of the push and pull of our state and municipal governing bodies on issues that will impact not only Frisco, but the surrounding communities. The Frisco Chamber of Commerce is hosting a panel discussion of these issues at our October 19, 2016 Legislative Luncheon. Panelists will include members of our State Legislature and our local Frisco City leaders, as well as representatives of the Texas Association of Business and the Texas Municipal League. We promise to ask questions and probe beyond the typical political sound bites on the issues that matter the most to Frisco and to the business community. This is a luncheon you won’t want to miss between our policy-makers and our policy-shakers.”
The Frisco Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), an innovative educational program for students entering Grades 6 through 12.
The YEA! program takes students through the process of starting and running their own businesses. Each participant will brainstorm a business idea, write a business plan, pitch to potential investors, obtain funding and actually launch their own business or social enterprise.
Frisco ISD middle and high school students are encouraged to apply. No prior business experience is required, though applicants should show determination, creativity and a strong work ethic.
The program begins in November and runs through April. Classes meet each Tuesday evening from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Frisco ISD Career and Technical Education Center, 9889 Wade Boulevard in Frisco.
Students take educational field trips, meet community and business leaders and work with fellow students to develop official logos and websites for their businesses, an interactive process that encourages professional communication and provides real-world experience for Frisco ISD students studying graphic design and web development at the CTE Center.
Tuition for the YEA! program is $295 including books and supplies. Scholarships are available and will be awarded on the basis of need and merit. For information, contact Roz Righetti at 972-335-9522.
The deadline to apply for Young Entrepreneurs Academy is Sept. 30, 2014. Click here to download the application.
