The Comox Valley Small Business Association, in its 18th year in the Valley, is hosting a meeting on Thursday, May 7.

The meeting is held at the Filberg Centre, lower level (Evergreen Room). The meeting will start 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 7pm.

The guest speakers are Lori and Russ Ball, co-owners of Comox Valley Fossil Adventures and Audio Xcellence DJ Services.  They will speak on the topic of  “Turning A Hobby Into A Successful Business.”

Bring biz cards, door prize, and a snack to share if you like.

The organization’s May 21 meeting, also at the Filberg Center,  will include networking 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.
