Our January Speaker – Robin Smith of Rivers Edge Alliance

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, January 21 at the Looking Glass Restaurant at 329 Warfield Blvd. Dutch treat breakfast will be at 9:30 am, with the business meeting to start at 10:00

Breakfast is buffet style, so please send Patty Holland an email at holland_patty@yahoo.com or call her at 850-699-5077 to let her know if you plan on eating ASAP.

The Looking Glass is a Republican-owned restaurant that normally charges for their meeting rooms.  However, we do not get charged.  As such, please consider eating breakfast and supporting this business as they support us.  Breakfast is $15.54 including tax and gratuity.  Specialty drinks (and they are amazing) are extra.

Our speaker will be Robin Smith, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, who founded and heads Rivers Edge Alliance, a consulting firm with emphasis on project management, communications, and strategic planning with companies, campaigns and causes.

Smith has a unique background with experience as a nurse in the heart transplant program at the University of Alabama, Birmingham Hospital; almost two decades of sales and marketing in health care; history-making elected terms as the Tennessee Republican Party Chairman; and a small business owner.

Currently, Robin serves clients in the health care, non-profits and political sectors.

A wife of 30 years married to Scott Smith, a mother of two, Callie, 25 years old and Caleb, 23 years old, Robin has been a constant in the conservative Christian community in the Tennessee area through speaking, writing and volunteering.  Robin teaches Bible Study weekly at Abba’s House at Central Baptist Church in Hixson.
