What are our committees?
Membership and Marketing Committee
The role of the Wheat Ridge Business Association’s Membership Committee is to recruit, retain and grow the association by actively engaging with current and prospective members. Engagement happens on a variety of levels including emails, phone calls, office/business visits, meetings, business after hours and more. The committee welcomes new members who are interested in developing authentic relationships and promoting the mission of the Wheat Ridge Business Association in the community.
Contact the Membership and Marketing Committee Chair – Lindsay Reinert, Intermountain Healthcare – Lutheran Medical Center

Community Outreach Committee
The Community Outreach Committee connects WRBA members with the local Wheat Ridge Community members and organizations. The committee helps facilitate community building, promote opportunities and encourage community connection.
Currently, the committee is partnering with the Wheat Ridge High School Career explorer program to offer work-based learning opportunities for students at local businesses. This program provides students with learning opportunities and a chance to explore career paths before they graduate. It provides businesses a way to engage the community by offering job shadowing, internships, mentorships, industry certifications, or apprenticeships to the future workforce.

The WRBA believes that an important function for the organization is to advocate for the business community. Our elected officials need the input of the community when making laws and policy decisions. WRBA is an active member of the coalition of Jefferson County business groups known as the Jefferson County Business Lobby. The JCBL advocates as the unified voice of 3,000 Jefferson County businesses for public policies that strengthen our business climate.
