As a business owner in the Towne Lake area, you may be aware of our organization, the Towne Lake Business Association (TLBA). We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting business in the Towne Lake area and serve as a support system for our business community since 1998.
The TLBA hosts monthly Lunch 'N’ Learn Workshops with featured speakers who are experts in their fields. Topics include advertising and marketing, customer service, human resources, recruiting, website design, email marketing and cross selling, just to name a few. Our plan is to provide educational presentations on relevant topics that will help our members grow their businesses.
We realize that as a small business owner, you must wear many hats to keep your business running smoothly and effectively. The focus of the TLBA is to encourage small business owners to share ideas, function as a unified group, and provide moral support for each other in the business arena.
We invite you to become a member of the TLBA and join us in our effort to support businesses in the Towne Lake area. Annual Membership dues are only $50; we're sure you'll find that it's well worth it.
Our Lunch 'N’ Learn workshops are held on the third Tuesday of each month at Featherstone's Grille at Towne Lake Hills. Please feel free to contact any of the officers listed at right if you have any questions about the TLBA. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
