The Comox Valley Small Business Association, in its 19th year in the Valley,  is hosting a meeting on Thursday, Feb. 4. Owners of small businesses are invited to attend as guests.

The meeting is at the Filberg Centre, lower level (Evergreen Room) and starts at 5:30 p.m. There will be networking from 5:30-6, and then the educational portion of the meeting starts and runs until 7 p.m.

The guest speaker will be Hans Peter Meyer, the business coach behind the community-oriented initiative, We Are YQQ.

Guests should bring business cards for the networking portion of the meeting; they are invited to bring a door prize and a snack to share.

The organization’s Feb. 18 meeting, also at the Filberg, will include networking, a spotlight presentation by marketing consultant Carolyn West-Price Touhey (owner of SmartBiz Strategy), and a “mastermind” session, which promotes a “group-think” approach to addressing business scenarios often faced by entrepreneurs.

There is no charge to attend SBA meetings as a guest for up to two meetings per year.

The dues to join the group, which meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month (except December, July and August) are $95 per year.
