Now is the time more than ever to continue positive engagement, to show support for one another where and when possible and WMB is hard at work creating opportunities that connect us virtually while showcasing our community businesses. We continue creating awareness and support that is so needed right now to ensure that the e-commerce of your business continues to flow at this most challenging time.  Everything we all do now to help and support one another has never been more important.  

Please join us for our FREE  ‘Social & Up Close’ (vs Social Distancing), ‘Zoom In’ Network Lounge series, created specifically for our network to remain in touch, and to learn from one another. We will  hear from our many community leaders and business owners' stories on how they are coping, providing tips and/or resources for all of us, which will hopefully bring some ‘hope’ and smiles’ back in these stressful times.

We thank each of you as always for your support and belief in what we do and our why. The mindset for all of us during this time, is extremely important, and what we are seeing on Facebook, with people singing from their balconies in Italy, to our incredible medical personnel, delivery drivers, our grocery store workers and so many more we count on, is inspiring and out the good.  We continue to say, ‘Stay Encouraged’!  

Be strong, be smart, and believe!
