EWVIDCO Membership Drive/Holiday Mixer
Thursday, December 4, 2014  5:30-7:30 pm
The Well, 272 Meserole Street (near Waterbury)
EWVIDCO’s year-end membership drive is starting soon—if you are not yet a paid EWVIDCO member, now is the time to fix that right up!  EWVIDCO is a resource for hundreds of businesses each year—we help businesses like yours address whatever challenges you are facing.  Whether it’s spotty phone service, a byzantine permitting process or finding exactly the right employees, our team can tap into a vast network of resources to help you solve your problems and eliminate your obstacles to growth.  Your business needs EWVIDCO, and EWVIDCO needs your support.  If you are already a paid member—thanks so much for your support!  If not, please become a member and support EWVIDCO through a tax deductible $400 donation.   In addition, if you are already a member, and know of any local business that might be interested in supporting EWVIDCO or might benefit from our services, please bring them along as our guest! RSVP is a must: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ewvidco-membership-driveholiday-mixer-tickets-13468704257 
This event is generously underwritten by Astoria Bank Business Banking and the Newtown Creek Group.
