CBC Benefits for Nonprofit Membership

Posted: September 4, 2018



The CBC Nonprofit Lunch and Learn series continues to grow in popularity as does the number of charities from all over Greater Cincinnati who are joining the Council.  At our most recent Lunch and Learn held August 28th, a record number of over 40 attendees, turned out to hear social media experts provide tips on managing a social media strategy, which will allow nonprofits to strengthen community recognition and support.

VonLehman continues to be a strong sponsor, partner and host of the series. The firm heavily promotes the quarterly meetings to its 400 nonprofit clients. The next lunch and learn will be held on November 13 on the topic of employment and culture.  

In addition, the CBC has added healthy gains in the charity sector.  Back in 2010, 17 percent of the CBC’s 130 members were nonprofits.  That percentage has blossomed to 22 percent of the CBC’s 370+ members.

The lunch and learn is not the only amenity granted this group.  A two-minute nonprofit spotlight is offered to one member at each monthly luncheon. Those crowds average about 175 in attendance.  The CBC also broadly promotes nonprofit’s activities on the CBC social media pages and in the weekly CBC newsletter that goes out to more than 800 individuals. Membership rates for charities are half the rate charged of for-profit businesses and start at $125.  For more information regarding CBC membership, contact Executive Director Pat Frew, pfrew@cbcky.com.







The Erlanger Business Council is getting wings of its own!

Posted: August 20, 2018

Erlanger Business Council meeting on July 31, 2018


The EBC held its first formal meeting at the Erlanger City Building with a crowd of approximately 60 people on July 31. This was double the turnout from an introductory meeting in June.

Through the tremendous out-pour of support, the leadership of this group is quickly being transferred from a city-initiated venture to a local business leader facilitated endeavor. The EBC Leadership Committee is excited to be creating a new group with their own twists on past and existing groups of this type. The EBC is an advocacy group whose mission is to drive economic success for Erlanger by encouraging new business development, supporting current businesses through open dialogue among owners/leaders and government officials, and enhancing the community around us.

The EBC will be meeting every Tuesday from 8:30am- 9:30am. On the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Tuesday of the month, the meeting will be called an EBC Community Meeting and will be centered around developing new business and personal partnerships. The 4th Tuesday of the month will be the Erlanger Business Council Meeting and will be centered around business advocacy and community engagement. The EBC will continue to meet at the Erlanger City Building in Council Chambers and the doors will always open up at 8:00am for open networking plus coffee and donuts sponsored by one of the business leaders. For additional questions, pleases contact Jessica Fette at jessica.fette@gmail.com.

The Covington Business Council has provided advice and support to the Erlanger Business Council and is seeking to help other smaller communities grow and develop business advocacy groups to foster better relationships with government. For assistance, please contact Pat Frew at the CBC at 859-431-1500, extension 1.
