The next scheduled meeting will be on Saturday, October 15th from 11AM till 1PM at the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge located at 10000 Ballantyne Commons Parkway. One of the most important events we have hosted or participated in over the years started with the original Candidates Forum & Chili Cook-Off Event which later became a feature of the Ballantyne Fall Festival. Sadly the Festival is not being held this year so we have made arrangements with the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge to once again host a candidates meet and greet for the public. We have extended invitations to a wider range of candidates in the region this year to increase public participation in getting to know the candidates better. Simply a great opportunity to speak with the candidates and learn about their positions on issues you have interests in.

ABOUT THE BALLANTYNE BREAKFAST CLUB AND OUR MEETINGS
The goal of the Ballantyne Breakfast Club which was founded in 2001 is based on the belief that "An Informed Community is aBetter Community". The BBC services as an information forum for the South Charlotte - Ballantyne area. Meetings provide for the sharing of information between the residents, developers, business leaders, elected officials and services providers. Most meeting are scheduled on Saturday mornings at 9:00AM during the months of February, April, June, August, October and December. Meeting are held at the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge which is located at 10000 Ballantyne Commons Parkway. We recommend arriving about 8:30AM to have time to socialize and enjoy the free refreshments provided by the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge. All meeting are free and open to anyone wishing to attend no RSVP is required. During the year based on demand special meeting are sometimes scheduled. All meeting information is posted here so please visit for schedules and changes. Meeting information is also published in local media and on www.goballantyne.com
Every year we start our meeting schedules with a unique "Priorities Meeting" which brings together the public and a wide range of elected representatives from the state, county, city and school system. Joining them are senior representatives from our police, fire, sheriff office, school system, transportation officials from NCDOT, CDOT and CATS. Also attending are senior staff from the Planning Department, Water Department, Park & Recreation and others. We also include other important organization to participate like the YMCA, NAACP, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, CRVA, UNCC, CPCC and Wingate University. Closing out the list are local developers and builders who provide updated information on area projects. The meeting is arranged so that each representative group is located at table where the public can meet them and ask questions.
Other meetings during the year will cover education, traffic improvements, area growth & business developments, elected officials & candidates forums and other timely topics.
Thank you for attending our meetings and to the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge for hosting them.
