WESTERN COMMUNITIES BUSINESS GROUP TO HOLD 2013/2014 SEASON KICK-OFF RECEPTION
Wellington, FL—November 11, 2013—On Saturday, November 23, from 2:00p.m. until 6:00p.m., the Western Communities Business Group will be holding their 2013/2014 Season Kick-Off Reception at the Wellington Equestrian Gallery and Mall. The Wellington Equestrian Gallery and Mall has relocated and is now open in its beautiful, new location at 13920 Wellington Trace, Ste. 44 in the Wellington Marketplace.
Last year, some creative local business owners banded together and formed the Wellington Business Group. This group successfully utilized common advertising, promotions and creative marketing to reach out to members of the equestrian industry that call Wellington home during the equestrian season. The growth and success of last year’s group has proven that there is a definite need in the Western Communities to have a business group that is responsive to the needs of the local business owners and will concentrate their efforts on strengthening the area’s businesses, and thus the economy. This year they are planning on expanding their membership numbers and their targeted geographic membership base to include ALL of the businesses in the Western Communities. In order to reflect this, they have decided to modify the original name of the organization and to be called the Western Communities Business Group.
Maureen Gross will be joining the leadership team of the Western Communities Business Group this year. Gross has extensive experience in meeting the needs of area businesses and business owners through her years of working as a director of development for many area non-profits and at the former Palms West Chamber of Commerce. “I am looking forward to growing the outreach and targeted programs that this business group will provide to the local businesses that are its members,” said Gross, “and to increasing the group’s economic impact in our local communities.”
Any business person that is located in the Western Communities is invited to stop by the Wellington Equestrian Gallery and Mall on Saturday, November 23, for the reception. The afternoon will include refreshments, networking and a place to catch up with fellow, local business leaders. While there, they can get information on the Western Communities Business Group’s member benefits or suggest some benefits that they would like to see added to the current programs. 2013/2014 membership applications, door stickers for member’s entrances and membership cards will be available. Guest will be able to either renew their current membership or sign up as a new member this year at a cost of $150 per business membership. Everyone is encouraged to drop in to get information on what the business group is planning on doing this upcoming year.
The Western Community Business Group mission is to focus on local, community-rooted businesses and to provide them with the tools and programs that will help their businesses thrive. This will ultimately strengthen the community and build a vibrant, durable local economy…here in the Western Communities.
