Our October mixer returns to our usual fourth Thursday, but at a brand new location. We are delighted to announce that MERIWEST CREDIT UNION will host the event. While they've been Silver members for some time this will be our first visit to their office.
The event will feature hors d'oeuvres, drinks and a raffle. With the proximity to Halloween, you COULD wear a costume, but it's not a requirement! We'll see who dresses up . . .
Our host, Meriwest Credit Union, is one of Silicon Valley's largest and most established financial institutions. We've been providing proactive, personal and innovative financial services to businesses and families throughout the Bay Area and Tucson, Arizona, for more than 50 years. They adhere to the mission of credit unions, which is different than that of a bank. As they explain:
- We promote the economic well-being of our members, including those of modest means
- We do so through a system that is cooperative, member-owned, volunteer directed, and not-for-profit
- We continue to invest in people, reaching out to help those who are traditionally underserved
General Info on Mixers
Monthly mixers are for members and prospective members to meet and network. They are hosted by members (at the Small Business Level and above) and include refreshments provided by the hosting member as well as a member raffle contest.
The host and other members are encouraged to bring an item for the raffle and in return receive an opportunity to introduce their business to the gathering. Anyone may win the raffle but only members may donate/announce. The raffle item should have a value of $30 or more and should be a gift card, basket or something from the business, rather a certificate for free consultations, etc. All are welcome to attend. Members may bring one guest for free.
