Economic Vitality is a core part of the WCDC mission and this means strengthening Westside businesses.
Westside businesses are essential to the success of our community.
The goals of the Westside Business Network (WBN) are to increase visibility and advocacy for our businesses through productive and fun social events. WBN Meet-Ups connect you with local leaders, resources and agencies. WBN Field Trips explore the Westside while bringing visibility to local businesses. WBN events are always friendly and bilingual. WBN programs and memberships are open to all our local businesses whether store or home-based, or offering retail, creative, industrial professional and personal goods and services.
Most importantly, the Westside Business Network helps the WCDC understand the needs and issues our businesses face. By being a part of the WBN, you are creating a more connected community while building a platform for strengthening the Westside.
