The Comox Valley Home Based Business Association (CVHBBA) invites owners of all small businesses to participate in their annual Small Business Expo on Oct. 14 (1 to 8 p.m.) at the Florence Filberg Centre.

By sponsoring the annual trade show, the HBBA (a non-profit organization) provides a venue to showcase members and other small businesses, which are often “well-kept secrets” that go unrecognized in the community.

The cost to exhibit is $170 to $200 for non-members, but a portion of that can be applied to dues for those who join the HBBA.

Space is limited, so contact Donna Clairmont immediately for more information (Donna@ClairmontDraperies.com).

The CVHBBA, a non-profit organization, provides networking opportunities for association members, encourages and assists members in their personal and professional growth, acts as an advocate to promote the growth and acceptance of home-based business in the Comox Valley, and participates in decision-making about economic development that affects the Valley.

The group meets monthly (September to June) at the Best Western Westerly Hotel on the first Thursday of the month aT 6:30 p.m.

Dues to join the CVHBBA are $75 per year with no fee for meetings.
