New EBA Membership Drive
The people have spoken!
In a recent EBA member survey, respondents told us that EBA members are what make their membership worthwhile – and the Board agreed! As a result, we’re introducing the annual EBA Membership Drive starting today, February 1, 2019.
The EBA prides itself on being an accessible organization for small business owners - from both a personal and financial standpoint. We raised our membership prices last year so we can better prepare for the sustainability of the organization over the long-term but still remain the most cost-effective business organization in the city.
The EBA has more than 130 active members and we want you to renew your memberships - even if they’re not yet up for renewal this month. For current members who renew their 2019 membership in February, you’ll be entered into a draw to win back your annual membership in full!
You’ll also continue to expand the impact you have on your business with access to the tools, insights and connections you have undoubtedly received as part of your membership to help drive your business forward.
If you are not yet a member and join the EBA as part of our Membership Drive this month, you’ll receive a promotional code that gives you one free ticket to an EBA Luncheon of your choice this year. Essentially, that is a $35 discount on your already very accessible membership price.
NEW MEMBERSHIP PERK
At our 2019 AGM, we announced that we’re introducing a new membership benefit. EBA members will now be able to invite one guest to our monthly mixers for free! This will give you the opportunity to bring a client you’re trying to woo, or a fellow business owner who might want to come to network with you. That’s an extra value of $120 for you as part of your EBA membership.
We also want to remind you that your EBA membership will always give you access to other valuable benefits, including:
Timely content: New business and EBA-centric information delivered to your inbox through our newsletter, giving you more of the insights you need to deliver business results.
Included learning: Free-to-members events every quarter on industry topics from leading experts, providing you with knowledge and tactics you can put into practice immediately. The next free-to-members event will explore how you can use your member profile on the new EBA website to showcase your business and expertise. Event details will be shared soon.
Continual learning: Discounts to business relevant speakers and events with information you can apply to your business immediately. Speakers are invited to speak to EBA members in smaller, more intimate settings to give EBA members more direct access to leaders in Edmonton’s business community.
City-wide connections: Your membership gives you access to a community of hundreds of small business owners that opens up a network of like-minded professionals you can leverage for answers, networking and to advance your business.
You also get great access to events co-hosted by our partners, like the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, Kingsway District Association, West Edmonton Business Association and the Leduc Regional Chamber of Commerce.
It’s never hard to make your EBA membership pay for itself! We invite you to reach out to Julie Geldart at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to visit our website to renew your membership during our Membership Drive!
You as a member is what makes this organization a community for small business.
