HBSBA announces April meeting for entrepreneurs

The Comox Valley Home-Based & Small Business Association invites entrepreneurs to its meeting Thursday at the Best Western.

The Comox Valley Home-Based & Small Business Association invites all entrepreneurs to its monthly meeting Thursday, 6 p.m. at the Best Western.

There is no fee to attend.

The power networking portion of the meeting will allow each person to provide a two-minute summary of his or her business and what represents a good lead for that business.

Each attendee should bring at least 50 business cards. All are invited to donate a door prize for added exposure.

Following the round-the-room introductions, guests and members will be able to connect with businesses that catch their attention in a casual stand-up atmosphere.

The association meets monthly from September to June. There are a variety of marketing opportunities for members, including the annual trade show and member spotlights at the meetings. The website and Facebook page accept member posts. Members can also gain visibility through sponsorships and participation on committees, the board and in fun events such as the Canada Day parade.

Membership to the CVHBSBA is $75 per year with no charge to attend meetings, open to all small businesses.
