2020 Annual Members Meeting
Join us in celebrating our work together and the road before us as we continue to build a just, green, and thriving local economy.
SBN’s 2020 Annual Members Meeting will be held at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in the Tuttleman Gallery and Annenberg Gallery on February 6th, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.
This annual gathering is an opportunity to celebrate SBN’s accomplishments over the past year, hear plans for the year ahead, and explore connections within the local independent business community while mingling over local food and drinks. A thriving impact economy is evolving from possibility to practice, and Greater Philadelphia is a beacon. We are extremely proud that our community is the driving force at the heart of it.
Each year, you, as the membership of SBN, have the benefit and the responsibility to elect new people to join your Board of Directors. During the Annual Meeting we will announce the results of the election.
