CMBA Meeting Notes

At the March 11 meeting of the Cedar Mill Business Association, the Downtown Identity committee noted that the Town Center banners had been taken down because they had proved unable to withstand the winter storms. We will be working with the sign company to develop a better material and revised designs.

The Events Committee announced that CMBA will have a table again for members to hand out promotional materials at the Cedar Mill Park Concert in August, and members will also be on hand to welcome visitors. We discussed a raffle with prizes from member businesses.

A new Community Outreach committee is being formed to find and support those in need in our community. Our first project will be helping homeless students at Sunset High (see Homeless in Cedar Mill).

The Publicity Committee talked about the online Business Directory (cedarmill.org/biz) and discussed the possibility of a printed version.

The Membership Committee reported that invoices have gone out to members who have not yet renewed. Now we will be targeting businesses who have not been members recently or ever.

The featured speaker was Virginia Bruce  of Team Web who talked about Effective Business Email, and handed out a four-page guide, “Effective Email,” which is available as a PDF on the CMBA website (cedarmill.org/CMBA).

Becky Jarvis finished up the meeting with her “Ten Minutes of Fame” presentation about her business, Electronics Unlimited, which performs onsite repair and upgrades for computers and network installations.

Join us this month for a presentation from Dan Larsen of Cedar Mill Bible Church about the big community outreach program being done in conjunction with Portland CityFest. We will also have a short presentation by the Sheriff’s Office about their May levy measure. Mike Irinaga will get his “Ten Minutes of Fame” to tell us about his insurance business.
