HBBA Invites Guests To a Power Networking Opportunity
Courtenay, BC—The Comox Valley Home Based Business Association (CVHBBA) is
hosting its monthly meeting on Thursday, March 1, 2012.
The meeting is held the Best Western, starting at 6pm.
This month’s meeting is breaking from the typical format of educational presentations, so
guests and members have more time to tell each other what they do. Specifically, in lieu
of a guest speaker, the meeting will be dedicated solely to Power Networking.
Specifically, each person will present a two-minute summary of his or her business and
what represents a good lead for that business. To facilitate easy networking, “runners”
will get a stack of each speakers’ cards before each one starts to speak.
As the speaker completes the presentation, audience members can raise hands and will
immediately be handed the speaker’s business card before the next presenter starts.
This will make it easy to connect during the post-presentation part of the meeting or for
follow-up at another time.
While the HBBA previously hosted a Power Networking event once per year,
membership and guests asked for an encore.
The CVHBBA meets monthly, September through June, with December and July being
social events. There are a variety of marketing opportunities for members—from
speaking and/or networking at regular meetings to the annual trade show. The website
and Facebook page accept member posts. Members can also gain visibility through
sponsorships and participation on committees, the board, and in fun events, including the
Canada Day parade.
Membership to the CVHBBA is $75 per year with no charge to attend meetings.
Membership in the CVHBBA is open to all small businesses, not just home-based
There is no charge to attend.
