HAVE YOU BEEN TO OUR NEW WEBSITE?

 

You can still find us online at www.penfieldbusiness.org, but the site has a new look and a bunch of great new features. One of the key features of the new site is an expanded Business Listing Page for each of our member businesses and Member Login Portal that allows members to update their contact information, business description, and search keywords. Members also have the ability to add job listings, special community hot deals and member-2-member deals. Member login IDs were sent out last month. If you did not receive yours or need assistance with the new website, feel free to contact us.

 

*Note:  If you had a member-2-member deal on our previous website, please login and re-enter your offering. You have full control to add or modify your offer at any time.

PBA Event Reservation Payment Notice

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your incredible support in attending our events! We appreciate your enthusiasm and participation in our workshops, networking and community events.

 

In the past, the PBA has absorbed any expense for members who registered for events but were unable to attend for various reasons. Unfortunately the cost for holding events has increased and it has become necessary for us to change this practice. Going forward, the PBA will need to charge you for any reservation you are unable to fulfill unless we receive a cancellation notice 48 hours prior to the event. We are sensitive to the fact that last minute schedule challenges occur and we encourage you to send a substitute in your place if you find yourself unable to attend.

 

For all PBA meetings requiring reservations and a meeting fee, we have always extended a "pay at the door" option to our members and guests and will continue to do so.Recently, we added the option to pay by credit/debit card or PayPal on the PBA website. This option will continue to be available as well.

 

Again, thank you for your tremendous support! We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
