The Comox Valley Small Business Association invites entrepreneurs to its Thursday, Oct. 16 meeting, 7:30 p.m. at the Filberg Centre.

The Comox Valley Small Business Association invites all entrepreneurs to its Thursday, Oct. 16 meeting.

The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Florence Filberg Centre, lower level Evergreen Room.    Normally the group meets at 5:30, but a schedule conflict has necessitated a change for this meeting only.

It will include networking and a mastermind session during which participants discuss various scenarios, opportunities and challenges often faced by owners of small businesses.

Founded by a group of home-based business owners in 1998, the SBA is a Valley-based business group that provides education, mentoring and networking opportunities to members. It hosts meetings on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

In addition to meetings, there are a variety of marketing opportunities for members. The website and Facebook page accepts member posts.  Members can also gain visibility through sponsorships and participation on committees, the board and in fun events such as the Canada Day parade.

Membership is open to all small businesses.  www.CVEntrepreneurs.com.

The show, scheduled for Oct. 30, will be at the Courtenay Legion. Doors open at 8 p.m. Showtime is 9 p.m.

Costumes are encouraged, but not required.
