South Ogden City would like to invite all South Ogden Businesses to join the South Ogden Business Alliance (SOBA)! This program hosted by South Ogden City is a great networking opportunity for business of any size. SOBA helps local business leaders become familiar with others in the area and stay abreast of changes and local events.

•Who’s Invited? All South Ogden Businesses Owners/Managers
•What does the meeting include? Networking, Education & Free Lunch!
•Where are the Meetings held? Most meetings are held at The South Ogden Community Center located at 560 39th St. South Ogden, UT 84403. Occasionally meetings are sponsored by SOBA member and held at their locations
•When at the meetings held? SOBA meetings are always held the first Wednesday of every month from 12noon to 1pm.
FREE Lunch!
Lunch is always provided for those who attend, free of charge. Many members use the lunch time to connect and build relationships with other members.

30 second Commercials
This is an opportunity for all members to introduce themselves and talk about the company/business they represent. This also gives businesses the opportunity to promote monthly specials or other specific items related to your businesses.

5 Minutes to a Better Business Message
This Educational Message is presented by either a SOBA Member or a Guest that is a professional on the specific business improvement topic of the month. This is a short, quick way to get useful information and ideas to help your business thrive in our changing economy!

SOBA Member Presentations
Two SOBA members are given the opportunity to share an 8 minute personal presentation to the group.  Oftentimes members use this opportunity to showcase their business. Other times, presenters simply share an informative, inspirational or educational message with the group. For those interested in presenting, names are drawn at random and those selected members become the presenters at the following month’s meeting.

Prize Drawings
At the end of the meeting, there is a prize drawing for those in attendance. Also, a drawing is held to for the opportunity to be featured as the “Business Spotlight” in the South Ogden printed and online newsletters!
