Benefits

  • 1 Meeting per month – Formal Breakfast Meeting or Social meeting
  • Referrals – Placement in and full access to our proprietary Membership Directory for business promotion.
  • Morning Call Breakfast Meetings – a sit-down breakfast with the opportunity to explain and promote your business to the Membership, often incorporating an educational aspect or other element relating to business development.
  • Power Lunches – Similar to the Morning Call Meetings, the EBA will match certain Members with strategic partners in a more intimate setting to facilitate complementary and bi-lateral relationships.  All lunches will be geared towards how certain parties can work together and reach mutual goals.
  • EBA Socials – Relaxed but active social after-work gatherings, open to potential new Members and other invitees.  The EBA will avoid any duplicity of its Members so that each Member is assured to receive a referral, without competing for it.  However, the Socials are generally open to introduce new invitees to the group, to determine if in fact there is an overlap between a potential Member invitee and any EBA Member.
  • NO forced unproductive meetings; no homework; no mandatory attendance obligations.
  • “Autopilot” – Board meets regularly identifying matches and facilitating them, in addition to Member’s own business generation activities. The EBA Website will also act as a landing page for immediate referrals, which the Board will facilitate 24/7 via email.
  • Invitation to select charity events or other community-based events. The EBA will nominate its Members to other charitable organizations or community groups to serve as board Members for such organizations.
  • Membership Directory – published on our Website with a link to your website or a default page promoting your business on our website.
  • EBA Expert Advice – a private messaging function where Members can harness the expertise of the entire Membership to answer questions and service clients (Need technology help? Accounting help? Legal fees? Where is oil trading? What Exchange Funds are being traded heavily? How much to prepare an estate plan?)
  • EBA Blog – we will provide a forum for all Members to post/promote their events, publications, press releases, promotions, etc., to keep your name out in the blogosphere and search-engines to grow your presence in cyber-space. (As Board deems appropriate and with limitations).  See the blog here.
  • Training Ground for Sales Staff – the EBA promotes business development and personal growth. It is an ideal environment for executive sales, marketing and/or business development professionals to market their businesses, enforce brand image and develop meaningful and complementary business relationships.
  • Professional Development Activities – The EBA will regularly provide access to top-tier speakers and other presentations. “No Fillers”; the Board will use a discerning eye in determining whether any such presentation is valuable enough to be a productive use of the Membership’s time and participation. Each presentation will be offered to the Member only if the Board feels it provides meaningful information to the Membership with regard to business growth and/or professional development.
  • Member Spotlight – Each Quarter we will choose two EBA Member to spotlight. This will give the Member a chance to highlight themselves or their business.
