How WEA Operates

Connecting Member Businesses

At weekly luncheon meetings, members exchange information and are prepared to share knowledge of current business activities within their own sphere of operation.  This information sharing is the reason for the existence of the organization and may include pre-qualified referrals; leads for new business openings, new structures being built and renovations of old buildings, and names of contact people in various positions in organizations of interest to members.

As a benefit of meeting together and learning about the integrity of each other’s business ethics, WEA members cultivate confidence and respect for the quality of products and services available to their companies or to themselves personally, from WEA member firms.

What are the benefits of joining WEA?

Leads and referrals are the backbone of WEA membership.

In addition, as a WEA member you will become a pat of one of the oldest business organizations in the world–a precursor by decades to the many business networking groups so popular today. With similar type associates throughout the United States, Canada, South Africa and Great Britain, you will have access to firsthand information in your own area of operations as well as contacts globally through the International Executives Association (IEA). This connection will enable you to extend your reach worldwide if you so desire.

Additionally, during weekly presentations from WEA members as well as guest speakers, you will learn valuable information to ensure that you are current on what’s new in the business world.  WEA is the place to keep updated on employment law, insurance reform, energy savings, running a “green” business, the latest in marketing and advertising techniques, technologies to improve productivity, and myriads of other subjects.
