The LIBA Member Summit is a mini-retreat for local business owners to connect with others, learn how to build their business using the power of local, and come together as a community. Local business contributes to and defines our local culture. But what is the best way to embrace this as a tool for business and build the buy local movement at the same time?
Find out at the retreat! It’s fun. It’s informative. It’s beneficial to owners and their businesses.

(3:45pm) We've made some time for fun and games too!  When you register, we'll ask if you'd like to be on one of the teams for Family Feud, LIBA style. Be on the lookout for a member survey, so we can get results for what the "Survey Says!"  And thanks to the Family Feud sponsor Tilford Dobbins & Schmidt.

(4:30pm) As we wrap up the day, we'll have cocktails and snacks, plus drawings for Small Business Saturday materials you can use at your business (this portion is open to all LIBA members, even if unticketed for Summit). Connect with your fellow members and get ready for the hoLOUdays!

We'll also have optional, brief exercises at the breaks, from Qi Gong to Effiji Breath Work to Mindfulness.
