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 to Board Secretary, Eric Norberg, at 503-232-2326 or email We buy food according to reserved attendance. Thank you.
