Power Networking for entrepreneurs

The Comox Valley Small Business Association invites entrepreneurs to a Power Networking Opportunity.

The Comox Valley Small Business Association, now in its 16th year, is hosting its monthly meeting Thursday, March 6.

The meeting is at the Filberg Centre, lower level in the Evergreen Room, starting at 6 p.m. There is no charge to attend.

This month’s meeting is breaking from the typical format of educational presentations, so guests and members have more time to tell each other what they do. Specifically, in lieu of a guest speaker, the meeting will be dedicated solely to Power Networking.

Each entrepreneur will simply present a one-to-two-minute summary of his or her business and what represents a good lead for that business. After the round-the-room introductions, the room will be open for networking.

Door prizes are welcome and encouraged as an additional way to expose individual businesses.

On Wednesday, March 19, the SBA hosts a drop-in social at the Chalk Lounge in the Best Western lobby from 5-7 p.m. This is a casual networking event so members and guest entrepreneurs can get to know each other better.

The SBA meets monthly on the first Thursday of the month, September through June, with December and July being social events. The group also hosts an informal social on the third Wednesday of the month.

There are a variety of marketing opportunities for members — from speaking and/or networking at  regular 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, including the Canada Day parade.

Membership to the SBA is $95 per year with no charge to attend meetings. Membership is open to all small businesses, including home-based businesses.
