Welcome to the Medway Business Council

The Medway Business Council (MBC) has been supporting and growing the Medway business community for more than three decades and is here to support you.

The 13 original founders foresaw the need to develop an arena for the exchange of ideas and information, to address issues relevant to local businesses, and to promote a healthy business climate in Medway. These ideals continue today, when pulling together as a community is more important than ever.

The organization's monthly meetings provide members with the opportunity to network, promote their businesses' products and services, and hear presentations on a range of topics of interest to the local business community.

Helping Hands

Volunteering doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment

MBC needs your volunteer support to help make our organization bigger and better.

We want MBC to be a driving force help businesses in Medway succeed.  As a business organization, we are a grassroots and member involvement is critical to our future success and growth. MBC needs volunteers to serve on various committees including Program, Membership and Digital IT.  Being involved doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment and more hands makes the work lighter.

A few areas we need help include:

Outreach/Membership – We’d like to form a team of MBC Ambassadors, who basically talk up MBC and are willing to do outreach. Ambassadors would make, if you can commit to making some phone calls every so often to help with Membership development and outreach to current members, that would be great. One great thing about being an Ambassador is that it helps you network as you help MBC. Sometimes it’s tough to call on other businesses to talk about your own business, but if you’re calling to tell a business about something that can help them, it’s a great way to start a conversatoin.

Programming – It would be great to have a few people to help out with programing including:  1) Handling posts to our website to promote meetings   2) Handling online registrations    3) Taking pictures at events    4) Video taping events.  5) Program Idea development.  You don’t have to take on a whole bunch of tasks, but if you take on just one part then it can make the process easier for everyone.

If you’d like to lend your talents and a little of your time to help our organization continue to be vibrant, please contact any board member.

Jan 14: Ditch the New Year’s Resolutions and Live a Balanced Life

After the whirlwind of the holiday season, we quickly get down to planning and thinking about the New Year.  Did you make any resolutions about how you’re going to lose weight, go to the gym, organize your life, etc?

Paul Gerst, MBC’s speaker for our January breakfast meeting suggests “Ditch the New Year’s Resolution and Live a Balanced Life.”  Join Medway Business Council on Monday, January 14 at The Thayer Homesetad from 7:30-9:00AM and learn about ways to think differently about the new year and the changes you want to make.

Paul Gerst L.Ac., an Acupuncturist and Natural Health Practitioner of 22 years, will discuss strategies on living a balanced life and how and why we get in our own way, so often. Year after year, so many resolutions are broken by the time Spring arrives. Many don’t make it til February! Paul will touch upon what is behind these derailments, as well as what we can implement into our life to bring about more resistance to stress and better overall health.
