CMBA Meeting Notes
by Lauren McCabe, CMBA President, Cedar Mill Chiropractic
The Cedar Mill Business Association (CMBA) general membership meeting was held at Leedy Grange on June 9th.
During the Committee Reports segment, the Membership Committee noted that they are looking for new participants so that we can have an even more successful Membership Drive in 2010. Contact Becky Jarvis, Electronics Unlimited at 503-848-9191 if you’d like to help, it’s a great way to meet people.
The Events Committee reported that the Farmers’ Market booth is available for members to use to promote their business. Sandy Sahagian of Sandy Sahagian Portraiture is in charge of this ongoing event. If you are interested in participating, contact her at 503-297-2343. Plans are developing for the CMBA to have a booth at the upcoming Cedar Mill Park Concert on August 6 as well.
Our guest speaker was Julia Eiden of Huntington Learning Center. She presented an informative and well-received introduction to social networking strategy and tools, including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Following her presentation, CMBA created our own group on the business networking website, LinkedIn. This is the latest member benefit for the CMBA, because only members will be allowed to join our group. If you want to join, go to LinkedIn.com, and enter “Cedar Mill Business Association” in the search box.
Guy Pabst, Aflac, was the Ten Minutes of Fame presenter. He discussed the history of Aflac and the benefit of offering their supplemental insurance plans to employees.

Our main speaker will be Matt Costigan, Washington County Project Manager, presenting information on the Saltzman Road construction project scheduled to begin in August.
