Networking Gatherings are held “After Hours” and are held at member businesses throughout the city. They offer a convenience time for our members and their guest to conduct business and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. A brief portion of each network gathering is devoted to a short presentation delivered by the host businesses and are often accompanied by a business card raffle. Non members are welcome to attend our gatherings and all are welcome to bring business cards and brochures for our display table.
Public Forums & Debates
Public forums and debates take place at election time to provide the voting public with the opportunity to learn where local and state candidates stand on vital issues of concern. Arranged by the WBA Business/Government Relations Committee, these events are an important source of information to the business community and the public at large.
Breakfast meetings, with guest speakers, are held a few times per year to afford the General Membership an opportunity to become involved in the organization and meet with fellow members. The WBA invites speakers who will be of most interest to our membership, generally people in the public spotlight, city and state officials and businesspersons…people who are in a position to keep the business community informed on important current issues and events.
