2016 Membership Drive Underway

We are excited about our 2016 Belmont Area Business Association membership drive!
PIZZA FOR EVERYONE THAT JOINS AND RENEWS IN 2015 FOR 2016: Contributing member businesses take a slice out of our district budget with valuable memberships and sponsorships. So we’d like to add a slice to yours.
Straight from New York Pizza on Belmont and Baby Doll Pizza on Stark (voted best pizza slice by the Oregonian) are our proud slice donors.   Join or renew  your membership before the end of 2015 and have a slice on us. 
LAUNDRY OVER THE INTERNET: This is the third year we have a Pay Pal link for paying dues and sponsorships on our web site.

Connie Ihrke, at Belmont Eco Laundry, is providing $20 laundromat gift cards for the first five people to pay by Pay Pal that would value a laundry boost.

You can help keep our information about your business accurate and enter yourself for a drawing on Monday, November 30th (the day our membership mailer goes out) for a $25 gift certificate to Zupans.
Email karenhery@gmail.com and let her know about your brick and mortar business or business that services businesses between 12th and 60th on our near Belmont, Morrison and Stark.  We will add you to our data base and to our groceries drawing. 

NEW YEAR DRAWING: To highlight the great services of the Association and our district businesses, we hold a drawing each year for all paid members. . .

New this year – Marketing prize package
We will be gifting one new and one renewing 2016 member with a special BABA Marketing Package.  
One of the ways a business association adds value to district businesses is by extending your advertising reach with our connections and marketing knowledge and extra resources.  Stay tuned for all that will be included in this package as we tap our financial and social connections to put great options together tailored to the two businesses that win.
Back by popular demand:

Cascadia Pilates  Three hours of private instruction. The first hour you meet with an instructor for an assessment of your movement & posture to determine what your body needs. You then have two 1 hour sessions to work one-on one with a pilates instructor $225 value
Getting Organized:
Sustainably Organized owner, Casey Hazlett, will put the power of her company to work for you for 90 minutes of organizing . . . just enough to get you going stronger in the new year. $120 value.
Happy to add free cups of coffee, dinner’s out and other universal favorites to our prize giveaways and drawings.  If this would be a helpful way to market your business, email karenhery@gmail.com so we can add you to our publicity and prize list.
