WILLIAMSPORT -- The Williamsport Business Association (WBA) is excited to announce the launch of their new member driven website at www.williamsportpa.org. As a way to celebrate the new site, the newly elected WBA board would like to invite business owners, community leaders, and the general public to an official launch party/meet and greet event being held at Converge Gallery, 140 West Fourth St., Williamsport, PA 17701 on Monday, May 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The launch party will highlight many of the interactive features the new site offers including expansive member profile pages, and a dynamic events calendar that aggregates member events directly from Facebook.
"We are looking to make www.williamsportpa.org
the new place to find everything related to our great city," said Charles Imbro, President of the WBA
. "We made the new site interactive and photo driven to show off all the gems that our great city has to offer."
"We wanted to feature every business, gallery, restaurant or shop that our city has to offer on the new site. The real gems of the site are for our members as they feature full profiles w/ hours of operation, beautiful photos of the business, and links to social media," said John Yogodzinski, owner of The Graphic Hive who helped build this site. "I've always wanted to build a site to help make our city shine, and thank the WBA for giving me this opportunity."
In addition to a website review, members from the WBA board will offer a short presentation on their plans for the city, and outline the numerous benefits exclusive for members that join the WBA.
