Networking:
AHB is a place to meet and mingle with other home business owners, or prospective owners. Many long-term relationships, affiliations, new sources, and business have been derived from AHB's conducive networking atmosphere. Don't be surprised if you are asked to introduce yourself, as we go 'round the room, with your brief "elevator speech"! (Bring some business cards, too, if you like.)

Resource Table:
Free handouts, pertinent to home business owners or prospective owners, garnered from various sources.

Show'n'Sell:
A trade-show-style tabletop area for AHB members to display and share their goods and/or services.

COST and RSVP
Meeting cost is $10 at the door, cash or check. First-time guests pay $10, the same as members. We encourage you to come and experience an AHB meeting. Please RSVP our President, Eric Norberg, at 503-232-2326, or email him. We buy food according to attendance. Thank you.

AHB is a nonprofit organization for home business owners. We're based in Portland, Oregon, founded in 1992. We're governed by bylaws and have a Board and Officers.
