Bob-Bushnell-CollageCapital City Communicators have moved their monthly luncheons to 110 Main Private Event Center, an historic Boise home near the intersection of 1st and Main, across from the Ronald McDonald House in Boise. Owned by long time Boise resident, Bob Bushnell, the grand home was built in 1905 by silver miner Timothy Regan. It is now on the Historical Registry and Bob has restored the home to its original splendor. Available for business and social events, the CCC Board chose this location to allow for a more interesting and festive environment to foster more one on one communication for our attendees, as well as continue to learn the latest innovations in communication from our speakers. We hope you'll join us for our next luncheon!

Okay, maybe not quite yet. But things are certainly headed that way. I ran across a company the other day that is working on an app that lets advertisers virtually project ads on real structures.

The possibilities are endless.
