    LWRBA is unlike any other organization. Members look at the directory or already know someone in the Alliance who does what they are looking for or direct others to another member. This is what the organization has been about since its inception. If a company or person doubts it, they should experience an event for themselves. No "Clicks, just Contacts".

      I have been a LWRBA member for many years.  I had also joined other organizations in the area. But, I have found the LWRBA the best business group to be involved with. For me, it has been both a business and personal group of professionals who enjoy working closely to create opportunities for each other. Today, the LWRBA is the only business group I am a participant.

     “The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance certainly stands by its members! In January of this year Sally Ullman of Sally Ullman Photography, Shawna Hicks-Cranston of PostNet of Lakewood Ranch and I held a business seminar about branding businesses through our three industries. We approached Heather Kasten about space in which to hold the seminar. She did not hesitate in lending us the use of the Alliance conference room on our selected day and time and she even gave us tips on how to better market our seminar. On the day of the seminar, Sherry was there to help us set-up and was available for anything we needed. I believe our event was a success in part because of the support we received from our Alliance!”

      "My favorite aspect of the LWRBA is the people.  I have been involved in numerous organizations and the Alliance has by far the friendliest group of people I've experienced.  There are no "cliques" or "good old boys" groups in this organization.  Its members are genuinely interested and involved in promoting each other's business and community interests."

     "I'm very excited to be a member of the Lakewood Ranch Business  Alliance.  Being a sole proprietor, I do not have a lot of time to lend or  money to spend, so my choice to participate and collaborate with a local  business group has to be as efficient as it is strategic.  In a few short  weeks of becoming a member, I made so many incredible connections  with individuals genuinely interested in helping me grow my business and  raise the level of the perception of my service."

      2016 is going to be an extraordinary year!

     To kick-off 2016, my partner and I, John Barringer, joined The  Alliance.    This will be one of the best business decisions we will  make this year.      Not only do you and your team bring in key note  speakers who are on  the cutting edge of the business industry, you bring a fun and exciting  element to the social calendar where we get to know and support one  another.  This is what I truly love about The Alliance.  

     One of my favorite quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson is "Do not go where the path may lead.......instead go where there is no path and leave a trail".  The LWRBA will help my partner and I do just that................leave a trail!!

     Thanks to you and your team for making this an easy decision!!  Looking forward to a very successful and fulfilling 2016!

     "Moving to Sarasota from Pennsylvania meant starting my photography business all over again.  After 30 years of being the embedded photographer where I lived, I moved here and did not know anyone. My plan was to meet business people immediately in order to begin connecting.  I chose Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance because of the organized outreach that followed me after attending my first event.  I felt a warm welcome and encouragement to visit again.  The Alliance is so organize and offers easy opportunities to network and participate at different times and days of each month.  This helps to facilitate your transition into the business market a smooth transition after relocating."
