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.

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.
