New NBA Emerging Leaders group sponsors July events

The Newtown Business Association recently launched the NBA Emerging Leaders (EL) group, a group of young professionals (employed by or owners of NBA member businesses) who enjoy networking and connecting in an approachable atmosphere to create lasting relationships that play a key role in their development and success, now and in the future.

They are a diverse group of ambitious professionals committed to building community among the young professionals within the Newtown area.

NBA-EL draws its strength from being a program of the Newtown Business Association, which sees tremendous value in supporting all of its members in their ability to be more prosperous and engaged.

To this end, the EL group has scheduled two July events. The first is a networking gathering from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 17, at The Temperance House, 5 S. State St., Newtown. Register at Non-NBA members are welcome to attend as a guest to one meeting. Free appetizers and discounted drinks will be available.

The second event is an educational workshop focusing on first-time home-buying tips and investing 101. The workshop will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, in the Tyler Music Room, Tyler Hall at Bucks County Community College in Newtown. NBA members, those employed by NBA members, and guests can register at; registration is free and open through July 20. Refreshments will be provided.

NBA-EL priorities are to create new connections, impact the community and develop its members professionally through: mentorship and professional development via educational workshops; networking and connection building lasting relationships at monthly meetings/events; collaboration and education via the annual summit; and service to the community through support of NBA community events.
