The Comox Valley Small Business Association recently presented Kathy Sekulich with its “New Business of the Year” award at the organization’s  annual awards reception.

The SBA, which started in 1998 as the Comox Valley Home-Based Business Association, provides networking and educational opportunities for small and home-based businesses that operate in the Comox Valley or neighbouring areas.      Members also host various fundraisers and participate in community events for added exposure and camaraderie.

Meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the Filberg Centre, lower level, 5:30-7 p.m., September through June. The first meeting of the new session is an open house, Thursday, Sept. 1.
