October Meeting

At the October, 2015 meeting we were treated to an excellent presentation on Rayonier’s partnership with Nassau County on two large-scale land use plans that will evolve over many decades – the Crawford Diamond Industrial Park and the East Nassau Sector Plan, a mixed-use development, known to some locals as the TerraPointe development. Over the next 70-100 years, the East Nassau Sector Plan will include houses, offices, shops, resort facilities, medical facilities, schools, and industrial space on 24,000 acres that is largely located north of SR 200/AIA between I-95 and Chester Road to the state line. It is one the largest proposed development projects in the Southeast and will dramatically change the entrance to Florida. … read more

August Meeting

Shaun Harrell from Prospectus Web Development was our featured speaker at the August 11th meeting. He discussed trends in website development and demoed several example sites. He also presented an outline of the evolution of Search Engine Algorithms and their effect on website visibility, especially the recent Mobilegeddon update. Since April, if your site is not deemed mobile ready by Google, you will not be shown in mobile queries. He then launched the new EABC website and described how it incorporated some of the new trends. As promised during the meeting, he posted an outline of his presentation and links to several of the resources displayed at the meeting. If you missed the meeting you can see examples of the web trends and follow links to test & evaluate your site. Follow this link:

June 19 Petanque Social

The Petanque social on Tuesday June 19 was a complete success with more than 50 members in attendance. After some brief instructions from Phillipe, everyone played Petanque until we broke for snacks. A nice breeze and mild temperatures punctuated a special evening timed to include a spectacular sunset over the Yacht Basin and Amelia River.
