The GSBA: Expanding the Visibility of Your Business
The Greater Stapleton Business Association (GSBA) offers an opportunity for networking with local business owners and representatives. Founded in 2003 by a handful of Stapleton-area business owners, the GSBA is a non-profit association whose mission is to foster relationships among local businesses while working to benefit the community.
The public is invited to attend meetings, held on the third Tuesday of each month at 8am. The next meeting, Feb. 17, will feature a speaker on the topic of Successful Digital Marketing. Every other month, active members can bring promotional products, coupons and marketing materials from their business to place in “New Resident Welcome Bags,” which the GSBA distributes to new Stapleton homeowners.
Meetings are held at the new Stapleton MCA Office conference room on the third floor at 7350 East 29th Avenue.
