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.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL NOTICES
2013 Renewal Notices were sent out a few weeks ago, check your mailbox and send your renewal in early. This year we are offering a new membership option: A Premium Membership that allows you to pre-pay for nearly all of the year's events for one person in your business, saving you time and money. Premium members also enjoy premium logo placement on our website and in our newsletter, as well as special recognition at our events. A General Membership is of course still available and still entitles you to all of the great benefits you've come to enjoy at the PBA, plus the additional features of our new website.
