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.
Please tour the MBC website and learn all that MBC offers its members. If you'd like to learn more, visitors are always welcome at MBC events.
Join our mailing list to keep informed about our upcoming meetings and to learn about what the Medway Business Council is doing.
Have a question or business issue with which you'd like assistance? Contact us and we'll help in any way we can.
MBC News & Events
Dear MBC members and future members:
As a vertically-challenged president of Medway Business Council, no one would ever pin me as an expert in basketball, but I have a healthy interest in the sport as a metaphor for business in 2021. In basketball, as in business, players with a great rebound know three things: how to clearly communicate, how get into position to take control and take the shot, and how to stay alert while repositioning yourself – without getting boxed out.
In 2020, business owners in Medway certainly learned to stay on our toes, and pivot. And pivot. And pivot again if needed. We’ve kept the MBC spirit going in a pandemic throughout 2020 by working as a solid team, and I’m immensely proud of making it through last year and to see us into the 2021 winter stretch. Vaccines are being distributed as we speak (one more basketball reference: the “shot clock” is ticking!) and we are poised for a 2021 comeback as long as we can move past the political quagmire we are in and unite moving forward.
I’m proud to serve with the leadership team of MBC. We have certainly needed to be smart and strategic as we continued our monthly programming virtually, and even used time wisely to reach out and increase our membership during a pandemic, welcoming some fabulous new Medway business leaders on board. Thanks to the leadership of Wayne Texeira and John Haddad, we’ve launched our first-ever townwide business directory at medwaybusinessdirectory.com, and we’ve planned some pretty fun socials. (Looking at you, ugly Christmas sweater owners who made our virtual holiday party pretty colorful!) We are thrilled to launch the first ever “21 Days of Giveaways” promotion now through the end of January to encourage local shopping, and will soon launch our first ever Medway Restaurant Week at the end of February with the cooperation of the Town of Medway and the Economic Development Committee.
Still wondering if MBC is a good value for $95/year? Your MBC membership dollars are working hard for you with cooperative ads too… shouting the #ShopMedway message online and in print, and at every opportunity via wonder duo Liz Shea and Faina Shapiro with monthly videos and profiles in entrepreneurial spirit.
Many thanks, too, to Laura Logan, our eagle-eyed secretary; John Parrella, our stoic treasurer; and dedicated board members Art Prutsalis, Tonia Marin and Tom Reardon for the assist on all things MBC… as well as Clint McHoul for his Scholarship Committee leadership during a pandemic, too.
In 2021, let’s create even more ways to promote Medway businesses, and support each other. The MBC team will keep our heads up and keep our eyes on the ball. Many thanks to all who set us up for success as we strive to make 2021 the year of the rebound.
Julie Dennehy, President, Medway Business Council
It’s holiday time and although we cannot meet in person, we invite you to Zoom in on December 16th for our Ugly Sweater Holiday Zoom from 5:00-7:00pm!
Pour yourself a refreshing drink and zoom in with us to introduce yourself and your ugly sweater (optional but encouraged), hear from some special guests, play some zoom-friendly games, and win prizes donated by member businesses. We all deserve some camaraderie and networking fun right now, so we hope you join us!
We are charging only $5 to help fuel our scholarship fund and we are supporting Coats for Kids, New England’s largest coat drive. If you have a warm winter coat to donate, please drop off at the Medway Lions Christmas Tree sale trailer any time they are open (M-F 2-8p and weekends 9a-8p).
Tickets are affordably priced at $5 for Members, $10 for Future Members. Once you are registered, you will be sent online meeting access information. If you would prefer to pass on the donation, just email us privately and we will send members the zoom info… no pressure!
With the recent launch of its town wide business directory, Medway Business Council is continuously working on new and innovative ways to support local businesses and encourage buying locally.
Now that you’ve invested in membership, make sure you activate it with a coupon or offer to promote your business!
We need you to email John Haddad (email@example.com) with your offer today for our #ShopMedway Initiative – coupon page and Facebook page. It can be a free hour of consulting, a 20% off coupon for one day of shopping or service contract, or whatever offer you think will drive leads/sales to your business!
Please email John today so we can add value to our directory and #ShopMedway page, and you can see sales before the New Year.
