SBA invites entrepreneurs to November meetings

The Comox Valley Small Business Association invites entrepreneurs to its twice-a-month meetings.

The Comox Valley Small Business Association invites entrepreneurs to its twice-a-month meetings. Mark your calendar for Thursday, Nov. 6 and Nov. 20.

The guest speaker for Nov. 6 is Maria Ji, a business and life coach. After earning her business management degree in  China, Ji received elite leadership training as an executive team leader with Target, and management training with Starbucks. She graduated from the intensive Accomplishment Coaching Coach Training Program and trains coaches in addition to coaching her own clients.

The meeting is at the Filberg Center, lower level Evergreen Room, starting at 5:30 p.m. with networking. The educational portion of the meeting starts at 6, and the meeting concludes by 7:30. Refreshments are available, or bring your own.

For the Nov. 20 meeting, the SBA is hosting a night of networking at the BackStreet Pub in Royston, starting at 5:30 p.m. There are no guest speakers for that meeting, but guests and members should bring plenty of business cards.

Contributions to the door-prize table are always welcome and a great way to expose your business.

There is no charge to attend meetings as a guest for up to two meetings per year. The cost of membership is $95 per year.

In addition to meetings, there are a variety of marketing opportunities for members with the SBA. 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 in the SBA is open to all small businesses.
