Mid-Month Update - NEBA

We attended the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC) Economic Future Roundtable Discussion event today and this phrase applies even in the economic and business world.   

Pay it forward is a film where teacher who gives an assignment to think of an idea to change the world for the better, then put it into action.   Today's meeting certainly got the group thinking about Edmonton's Economic Outlook fast forward 2050!  An engaging session where one could say a SWOT Analysis was done about Edmonton. 

What (S)trengths, (W)eakness, (O)pportunities and (T)hreat do you see surrounding Edmonton today and planning out to future?

We invite you to join and add your voice to the consultation being completed at https://www.community.futureyeg.ca.  A summary will be presented to City Council in the fall.  

Pay it forward is what we are seeing and feeling also from a charitable perspective with NEBA's very first Charity Golf Tournament - Swing Into Summer in Support of Edmonton Humane Society.  We are very pleased to have 50% of golfers and hole sponsors sold in the very first week.  Thank you to the companies and individuals who are participating in this very first event. 

We still have 50% to go - Sign up today to sponsor a hole and raise visibility for your company products and services in the golf tournament,  book a tradeshow table for the NEBA Business Mixer at Rundle Golf Clubhouse, sign up to play golf or donate a silent auction to the event.  We would love to Swing Into Summer with you on July 10! 

Curious to see how this all works and is there a fit for what we are doing and what you have to offer? Reach out to us today by phone 780.803.1678 or by email [email protected] and talk to Loan Gowers for more details. 

We're serving hot and cold food at this event with a cash bar for you to enjoy with a colleague or connection while you network, mix and mingle.

Sign up today and bring lots of business cards! [Register / RSVP for Swing Into Summer Event

Have you been thinking about where NEBA's heading strategically?  We went from working in the business to working on the business in the last year and more.  It's been worth the investment to do so as we plan monthly luncheons with guest speakers (starting July), our first golf tournament and how about NEBA's Third Annual Multi-Cultural Fashion Show to end the summer! 

Join us this Wednesday night at Good Buddy Restaurant, 9499-137 Ave, in the Private Room and get an update through our Annual General Meeting (AGM).  As we are serving food, members $5 to attend and guests/non-members $25.  Register today and we look forward to seeing you Wednesday night [Register / RSVP for AGM June 19]

Also if you need a caddy, the Edmonton Humane Society got the one for you! Applicants are ready and waiting to make your introduction.  Check out their CATtacular Adoption Event happening now till June 25, 2019.  Full details at www.edmontonhumanesociety.com

We got a little sunburnt being out in sun for over 4 hours with NEBA's tradeshow table at the Miller's Crossing Farmer's Market, 143 Ave & 50 St, Open from 11 - 3.  We hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day celebration yesterday and enjoyed the beautiful weather over the weekend.  We will be back at Miller's Crossing Market every Sunday from 11-3 during June and July.  Stop by and say hello to us if you are out and about.

Thank you!

We received an immediate benefit from having Jared VanderMeer with Magnolias Consulting Group as our guest speaker at last NEBA Breakfast Mixer event.  We implemented one of his ideas over the weekend in our NEBA on the Spot weekend - the reach and engagement level have increased substantially.  Thank you Jared for being our guest speaker at NEBA Breakast Event.  [NEBA on the Spot Video]

He answered a lot of questions we had issues with or concerns for our own personal business or situation.  A very impressive presentation through a question and answer format. 

We are looking forward to working with you again as one of our panel speakers in the fall and sharing your articles through the NEBA e-newsletter.
