Sally Brush, Owner, Custom Plus, Inc.:
Working in a home office can make you feel cut off from the rest of the world. The HWLBA offers me a chance to network with other business owners and work on events that benefit our community.
Linda Bonham, Advantage Tax & Financial Services
I joined the Highland White Lake Business Association so that I could become acquainted with other business owners in the area. In my contact with clients I am often asked for referrals to other business professionals and I wanted to personally know the companies that I am referring to. HWLBA has helped me meet many business and helped me become more involved in the community where I work and live. I am very committed to shopping in and utilizing the businesses in our area. I've received other benefits from belonging. Today I met with a new client who got my name from the annual HWLBA calendar. I've also utilized the bulk mailing benefit that is offered. I saved $238 on the mailing I just did - more than enough to cover my yearly dues.
