Where did the summer go!?  Its that time again; kids are back in school (YAY!), leaves are starting to turn yellow, the nights are cooling off, and of course, the Business Association meetings are firing back up!

Om Wednesday, Sept 13th @ 8am, at the Ramada Hotel in Emerald Park,  we welcome WCEPBA members, Andria and Leanne from CF Sunrise as our presenters. They will be talking to us about what they offer to businesses & communities. It’s great to welcome them back to present to our group!

We decided to award all 4 of them with the $1000 Scholarship this year! Thank you to all our current active supporting members of the Business Association for making this happen! The recipients were:

We are looking to start booking presenters for the new year, all dates are open for 2024. We are always looking for suggestions & ideas for presenters. We would absolutely love it if some of our members would like to do a presentation. Tell us all about your business and what you do!!!! Please reach out with any ideas you may have!

The Objective of the White City | Emerald Park Business Association is to promote and improve trade and commerce and the economic, civil, and social welfare of the district.

The association is open to local businesses and owners who live in this area.  To become a member, fill out a Membership Application and bring it along to the next breakfast meeting to enjoy the benefits (letter).  Meetings are open to everyone in the business community in the greater Emerald Park, North Service Road, White City area.  If you do business in the area, we would love to see you.

Breakfast meetings are held at 7 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month from January through June and from September through November at the Ramada, Emerald Park.  Not a member?  Your first meeting is on us!
As I've also found out, it is a great way to connect local business people - community members that you  may seldom otherwise get to meet with.  I strongly encourage business community members to attend as our organization is a great example of different communities working together for the success of all of us!
