After the success of the September Meetup, Contractors Connect, the premier networking event for contractors along the Emerald Coast, is back in Walton County on Nov. 1 at AJ’s in Grayton Beach to give contractors along the Emerald Coast a casual space to meet other professionals in the industry.

Following the trend of the September Meetup, the November Meetup will feature Randy Wise Homes Inc., a locally-owned general contracting company, and its selected charity, Safe Water for Walton, which works to study and educate people on the threats to Florida’s water sources.

“General contractors help glue the industry together,” said Erin Bakker, co-founder of Contractors Connect. “They’re the ones that put the pieces together, connecting sub-contractors, to create a quality finished product. And after more than 100 contractors joined us in September to meet Lord & Son, we’re excited to have Randy Wise Homes on board to bring their team at our November event.”

At the meetup, which is sponsored by Shoreline Engineering, contractors from along the Emerald Coast can join together from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to chat with the Randy Wise Homes team about its work in the community and to support Safe Water for Walton.

“I’m most excited about sharing the news of our new service of offering home inspections with the contractors in our area,” said Andy Mullis of Shoreline Engineering. “Our business is growing and offering additional services, so this meetup is a perfect space for us to relay what we do in the community.”

Tickets for the meetup are $10 and include one free draft beer, light appetizers, attendees’ business names included in a follow up thank you email and social media post after the event and an opportunity to win in multiple giveaway drawings during the event.

“Having Shoreline Engineering and Randy Wise Homes featured at this meetup adds so much to the event,” said Ali Weil, co-founder of Contractors Connect. “We’re excited to see this event continue to grow.”
