The association, which hosts twice-a-month meetings from September to June, 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.

There are a variety of industries represented, from bookkeeping and marketing to interior design and catering. Membership is $95 each and is open to any small business.

Business owners are invited to attend up to two meetings at no charge as guests to determine if the group is a good fit for them.   www.CVEntrepreneurs.com.
