Entering its 21st year of existence, the Western Communities Business Associates Inc. has provided local business leaders with vibrant and ever-expanding resources to grow their businesses.
The WCBA meets each Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. at Hilary’s Restaurant in Royal Palm Beach and concludes each meeting by 8:30 a.m.
The group separates itself from many of the other business networking organizations by restricting membership to one business in each category. Members are not required to meet a minimum number of leads or share their customer lists.
The organization can directly point to its success through the process of membership. Members get to know each other at the breakfast, utilize each other’s services and then feel confident in recommending members to the general public. An emphasis for membership is put on the integrity, customer service and timely response of the businesses.
There are only three requirements of membership. The prospective member must live and/or work in the western communities; must not be a member of another referral group; and be able to attend the minimum number of meetings as outlined by the organization’s bylaws.
Quarterly dues are sufficient to provide coffee and bagels and one full breakfast each month, plus the group conducts an annual year-end dinner party.
