Birmingham, Mich. — On Tuesday, Oct. 10, the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber will host its annual Community Leadership Breakfast at The Village Club. From 8-10 a.m. attendees can enjoy a nonprofit expo, networking, two keynote speakers and a plated breakfast all designed to draw attention to the good deeds being done in our communities.
