Eleven monthly meetings annually provide PB&PA members many opportunities to network with other local and like-minded Pennington and greater Hopewell Valley businesses.
Each monthly meeting is hosted by a different member at his/her place of business. Members who do not have actual brick and mortar locations are invited to co-host a meeting. Light refreshments are offered at these meetings by the hosts. There is no fee to attend a meeting but pre-registration is encouraged as a courtesy to our hosts.
All members in good standing at the time of pre-publication are guaranteed a listing in the PB&PA Business Directory. In addition, members are entitled to purchase full-color advertisements in the directory. Our directory has been extremely well-received by our members and, more importantly, the community as a helpful resource to “shop local.”
Our two big events each year, the Holiday Walk in December, on the streets of Downtown Pennington, and the MEGA Networking Event in June both draw large numbers of people, members and non-members. These events are also fund-raisers for pre-determined charitable/non-profit organizations in greater Pennington.
Speaking Opportunities: We invite members to provide a ten-minute presentation on a universal and educational topic at each meeting. This is an ideal way to share your business and, more importantly, your skills with the PB&PA membership.
Our current membership fee of $50 is reasonable and well worth the price.
We encourage you to contact our Membership Chairperson or any member of the Executive Board if you have any questions about becoming an Association member.
