15 Years for GCBA
On January 1st we will embark on our 15th year of serving the business community and all of its customers and clients here in the greater Gold Canyon area.
The Gold Canyon Business Association has worked to raise awareness and support for the concept of LOCAL FIRST.
Because we are essentially a bedroom community and unincorporated, it is vital to have an organization such as this to assist established and new businesses alike in building and maintaining a customer base.
This site is dedicated to raising awareness of the small business community here. Members fees go to promotion and education.
We have business meetings which offer special guest speakers that educate our members in ways to save money, protect the business and promotion.
Our Mixers offer the opportunity to learn more about each other's business so that we can refer our customers to other member business owners to fulfill other needs.
You don't have to be a business owner to become a member of the GCBA. Anyone interested in supporting the community is invited to join us!
