Our April 0222

Business Mixer Was Enjoyed by Many

Thank you to all the Businesses that came to our first large event since Covid shut everything down.  Its was wonderful seeing everyone again, sharing stories and catching up.  The Portland new Early Response Crisis Team provided a detailed update on their new program.

Membership Drive:  We have not been taking membership dues since 2019.  The MBA has changed  sign up time from January 1st instead of June.  So, if you haven’t signed up yet, you can do this online.  Your membership keeps us in compliance with Portland Business Association requirements, it helps us with matching funds for many of our projects, and funds a couple of our major events throughout the year.

You probably have all met Rich Reece by now.  He has been doing alot of our Board’s business since November.  Rich was hired and his job is funded by Venture Portland.  He has been worth his weight in gold with all the projects he’s been involved in: grant writing, membership drive materials, meeting set up, email blasts, social media entries, and meeting many of our business owners, just to name a few of his tasks.
