Members of the Bellingham Business Association (BBA) gathered at the new 140 Pub N Club restaurant (formerly the Fifties Lounge) where the sole purpose of the evening was networking. Since the focus of the meeting was on members, rather than on a guest speaker, there was plenty of time for each person present to talk about his or her own business focus. But rather than concentrate entirely on business, members made sure to add some fun into the mix as well, offering little known facts about themselves.

BBA President John Orthman encouraged members to bring a guest to upcoming meetings this spring. Guests will be admitted at the member dinner price for March, April, and May; and, if a guest joins, he or she will be awarded membership for the remainder of the fiscal 2015-2016 year—potentially five months of free membership. Additional incentives were noted for those who recruit the most new members.

At the upcoming BBA meeting, set for March 9th at Jalapenos Grill (see ad below), Bellingham-based Mass Renewables will talk about solar energy. Owners whose businesses are located in or live in Bellingham are invited to attend.

Thanks go to BBA Board member Meghan Correia, who was instrumental in making the BBA’s website ( more user-friendly.

The BBA is a nonpolitical, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization comprising owners and self-employed individuals who either live in or have businesses are located in the town of Bellingham. To attend the upcoming meeting or for more information, please visit www.BellinghamBusiness
