From: Sandy Erdman,
President of GBA,
City of Goodview councilperson
The Goodview Business Association became officially incorporated March 9, 1978. Some businesses are not even aware that the city of Goodview has a business association. GBA was organized for the purpose of advancing the economic, industrial, professional, cultural, civic and agricultural welfare of the city of Goodview, and:
To encourage the growth of existing industries and businesses while giving all proper assistance to any new firms or individuals seeking to locate in the city of Goodview. To support activities believed to be beneficial to the community; to oppose those which might be detrimental; and in general, to promote the welfare of all area citizens. To promote interaction and mutual association of the businesses located in the city of Goodview.
Every year, GBA works hard during Goodview Days with the chicken barbeque. It is always a challenge each year to get enough people to staff the booth, so I am addressing this issue in the local newspapers so we can encourage business folks in this community to put forth some extra effort to support the Goodview Days chicken q. In the past, funds have supported the local Boys Scouts, and projects in the city of Goodview .
Our initial planning meeting for the GBA barbeque will be held Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 5 p.m. at the Goodview City Hall building in the council chambers. Please spread the word—please contact other Goodview businesses and invite them to the meeting, too.
Finally, I have been the elected president of this organization for just a few months, and I am sorry to say due to medical conditions beyond my control and the advice of my physicians, effective immediately, at this meeting, I will be stepping down and returning the position back to Erik Brom, presently vice president, who has served as the president for several years. Please come to this meeting and support GBA and the city of Goodview with your business. I will be remaining on the Goodview City Council with the intention of being at most meetings.
