Spectrum Reach will sponsor the May 18 Chamber Luncheon at the Hoover Country Club. Spectrum Reach (formerly Charter Media) creates custom advertising solutions for the modern media landscape. Spectrum Reach helps businesses  reach customers no one else can across every screen and then they deliver the analytics to back it up. It's not about old or new, it's about what works.

In addition, we will be recognizing outstanding students with our 2016-17 Chamber Scholarships. The Hoover Chamber has given out more than $200,000.00 in scholarships through the years, and we plan to increase that amount each year. The Hoover Chamber established a 501 (c )(3) non-profit charitable foundation in 2016, so anyone can make contributions to the foundation for scholarships, and take the full amount of the contribution off their income taxes - both state and federal income taxes.

Matthew and Dr. Abby Allen have contributed $2,500.00 again this year for a scholarship to be presented in their name. In addition, the chamber will be presenting some $10,000.00 in scholarship. Each scholarship winner is invited to attend the chamber luncheon, and to invite their parents as guest of the chamber and the luncheon sponsor, SpectrumReach.

Students applying can be from any of the area schools, including all public and private schools, but must either be a Hoover resident, or at least one parent must be employed by the City of Hoover or a Hoover Chamber member business.

To attend the May 18 Chamber Luncheon, please make your reservations no later than Monday, May 15, by calling 988-5672, or emailing Lisa Dunbar at admin@hooverchamber.org. Networking begins at 11:15 a.m., with the meeting starting sharply at noon. The Luncheon is $20.00 with advance reservations or $25.00 at the door.
