I am very pleased to be involved with the CV Small Business Association as the Membership Director this year and look forward to getting to know the members and the potential new members who attend our meetings.
Just a heads up there is one big change coming up as of the October 3 meeting. At our AGM in June it was determined that the price of membership will increase from $75/year to $95/year and everyone will renew annually on October 1. This makes it more efficient for the association in the long-run. In the last week of August, I will be emailing all the members with their pro-rated dues amount letting you know about the membership rate increase and giving you the option to pay at the September or October meeting.
Membership has its benefits and it is my intention this year to talk about it at every meeting and in these newsletters. Please email or phone me with any questions and I will be happy to answer them.

With our new name change, what a better time to change our website....for the better. I figured the only way to get the website we want is to completely start from scratch. One of the most important changes will be to have all our members prominently featured where everyone can find us or you...on the front page!
What else would you like changed or added to the site? Send me your suggestions and comments via email and I'll do my best to make the SBA website the best ever.

The summer barbeque was enjoyed by all who attended - thank you to Steve & Carolyn Touhey for hosting this fun event.
I really want the members' input to ensure our Christmas party this year is a huge success. Please be sure to complete your survey that was sent out in July as I want your opinions!
And now for something new - drum roll please... Introducing the "SBA Social Night"! The new SBA Social Night will be held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at a local establishment, starting in September, and will give members a chance to visit and network in a low-key, relaxed setting. We are booked for Thurs, Sept 18 5-7pm at Fluid for our 1st Social Night

I am looking forward to a new
exciting year on the board, and remember if you hear of any community events going on that we can use to get the name of the SBA out there, feel free to let me know.
