"My experience with the LWRBA has been phenomenal! From my initial call with Blake, to onboarding me, showing me the member website, becoming Associate Investors, planning our Ribbon Cutting, canvassing the community with me, and making key introductions for my business, the membership has already paid for itself. If you put the work into maximizing your membership, the ROI quickly follows. Highly recommend the LWRBA to any new or existing business in the community!"

"I love the diversity and not just in terms of industry and culture, but diversity in terms of age. I love seeing young people hungry to improve their community and for the older generation to have the opportunity to help them. Even if you're older and you've done it, been there and retired, you can still be purposeful "
