About SBN Members
We are a community of local independent businesses that demonstrates the degree to which businesses can build profitable enterprises while serving community needs, sharing wealth, and protecting the environment.
Members receive and create value by participating in programming, building a strong interconnected local business community, and advancing the local impact economy.
“SBN has been a resource for us since we started our business. This mission is meaningful, the staff is responsive, the people in the network are inspiring, and the events are well-planned and relevant.”
