27th Annual Champions Golf Tournament
The Annual Champions Golf Tournament is one of the Chamber’s longest running events. It is a traditional affair that is popular with many Chamber investors who attend every year. The purpose of this event is to help support the ongoing efforts of the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber and its Military Affairs Council.
The tournament is an opportunity for members to network and get business done while enjoying some friendly competition. It is a networking event that offers much more than a typical luncheon, allowing for camaraderie and fun to forge relationships that last long after golfers leave the course.
In addition to the tournament itself, the event includes a variety of contests that involve prizes and are each sponsored by various parties.

State of the Schools
State of the Schools is CBRCC’s newest annual event, inspired by the need to address education and current events that affect students and parents in the community. This is an opportunity for educators, parents, and the community at large to hear about the impressive academic achievements of the Brevard County Public School System, and to showcase the incredible work done by the district’s educators.
The first State of the Schools was executed in August of 2022, led by Dr. Mark Mullins, former Superintendent for Brevard Schools, and accompanied by Sheriff Wayne Ivey, Sheriff of Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. Together they gave a thoughtful discussion on safety in our schools and the importance of the community coming together and advocating to ensure public schools provide students not only with educational opportunities that prepare them for success in life, but also to promote thought, innovation, and motivation to seize that success.
Due to the high turnout and interest in this event, it will now be an annual event put on by the CBRCC and Brevard Public Schools.
