       In addition, the BizHub committee will be included in and supported by all Celebrate Westwood marketing, public relations and social media programs and promotions ensuring that participants are alerted to various opportunities within Westwood. 

       The combined collected participant fees will help cover the technology and marketing costs of engaging with the community and all BizHub networking/meet-up events. Celebrate Westwood is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization EIN # 88-3697324 with the mission of bettering the entire Westwood community through events and programming. 



BIZhub members are invited to network with their business owner/operator peers at Westwood Candy Shoppe for our first BIZhub "MeetUp!" on Tuesday, May 16 at 5:00 pm.

This will be super casual, but we'll also share information about our Shop the Hub event scheduled for Saturday, June 10. Stop in to find out how to implement low/no-cost ideas to increase foot-traffic to your business that day, OR how to pair up with a non-downtown business to host a "pop-up" event in your store or on your sidewalk during the event! This networking event is designed for BIZhub members. Not a member yet?  Join today, see info above!

P.S. -- Complementary participation in our Shop the Hub events (June and November) and related marketing/publicity around the events are just one of the many perks of BIZhub membership! Don't wait!
