A message from our Board of Directors...

Spring has arrived and we are grateful for the warm weather. At April's lunch we learned an important lesson about helping the youth of our community. Our local high schools offer a comprehensive and structured internship program that makes it easy for companies and students to reach their goals together and learn from each other. The program also teaches students to think about their community at large. It's truly a win-win. Please contact Liberty and Century High Schools for more information about their internship programs, mock interviews for students, and much more.

In May
  • SCBA's Marketing Committee will continue to improve our social media outreach. If you have information to share, please email scbaoperations@gmail.com or send a Facebook message. We'd love to hear about your company or event.
  • SCBA will award scholarships to deserving local students by May 10th. Please visit our website and Facebook pages for the results.

If you are interested in hosting a Power Networking Breakfast or After-Hours event for the SCBA, please contact scbaoperations@gmail.com. We have openings from May through November. It's a great way to promote your business and make new friends.
