The Jefferson City West Side Business Association is a non-profit organization. It is governed by six officers: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and past President plus a board of directors comprised of six to nine individuals. The board and officers are elected annually by the membership. Officers serve one-year terms and board members are normally selected for three-year terms. The board meets monthly and an open meeting for members is held at the N.H. Scheppers, St. Mary’s Blvd. the 1st Wednesday of each month.
Advantages of Membership
The old example of a bundle of sticks being much stronger than one is the reason the organization was formed. Where there were only a handful of founding fathers, there are several hundred business and professional people on the west side. While there are many who belong to the association, there is a continual crop of new businesses and professionals moving into the area and changes of personnel. So, to give us the strongest voice possible, the association is always seeking new members or renewing past members. This certainly gives the individual members a voice in the civic affairs of the west side.
