The Comox Valley Home Based Business Association (CVHBBA) is hosting its monthly meeting Nov. 1.

The meeting is held the at the Best Western Plus Westerly Hotel in Courtenay, starting at 6 p.m. There is no charge to attend.

This month’s meeting is breaking with the typical format so guests and members have more time to tell each other what they do. Specifically, in lieu of a guest speaker, the group will rotate tables “speed-dating” style, with each person presenting a two-minute summary of his or her business and what represents a good lead for that business.

The table rotation will give each person an opportunity to present this more detailed introduction to at least 20 other people over the course of the night.

The CVHBBA provides networking opportunities for association members, encourages and assists members in their personal and professional growth, acts as an advocate to promote the growth and acceptance of home-based business in the Comox Valley, and participates in decision-making about economic development that affects the Valley.
