It was an evening for members to meet and greet at the second gathering of the newly formed Peachtree Corners Business Association (PCBA) as some 70 members and guests mixed and mingled at Ippolito's Restaurant on Thursday.
It was only the second time since its inaugural meeting in February when some 200 from the local business community attended that first meeting held at the Marriott Hotel on S.R. 141.
Thursday's gathering was "a huge success," said Michael McLaughlin, PCBA's president. "Approximately 70 PCBA members and guests attended and enjoyed networking with other Peachtree Corners area businesses and neighbors."
Thursday's event was restricted to the first 70 who registered as the the venue was only able to accomodate that number of guests said McLaughlin. He said the board is looking for venues for future events that will be able to accomodate a larger gathering.
In its short history, the PCBA has grown to over 80 members (50 Founding Members – see list below). Founding Members pay dues of $250 for the first year ($100 subsequent years) and are extended additional prileges. (Visit the PCBA website for more details.)
