Dear EJBA Members and Friends,
For EJBA, the health and well-being of everyone in our community has been our number one question when we talk about meeting again for our luncheons or rescheduling events that we look forward to. As we learn more about the phases of re-opening after quarantine, we want you to know that you will be updated via bulletin’s to stay connected on our plans. EJBA will be following the recommendations about public gatherings before we hold our monthly luncheons again and we are rescheduling all EJBA events with the understanding that those dates could change at any given time. We are exploring different approaches to how we typically hold our Luncheon, Wine Around the World and Business Bingo events and will keep everyone up to date as we get more information.
We wanted to share the most up-to-date EJBA information and hope that all of our members will be back together soon to fellowship and do business together!

Due to the COVID-19 quarantine, we have pushed elections back to a July vote and an August installation.
Renewals will be coming due for the new EJBA year.
Individual Memberships and New Corporate Memberships will stay the same.
Due to the intervention of the corona virus, the Board is making the following changes to Corporate renewals for our CURRENT Corporate Members. Corporate RENEWAL dues will decrease to $375 for 2020-2021. This will take into consideration a credit for the April and May cancelled luncheons. Corporate renewal dues may be paid in one lump sum or may be paid quarterly with the first installment of $125 due on August 1, 2020, the second payment due January 1, 2021 and the final due on April 1, 2020.
We hope this will encourage everyone to stay connected and be a part of EJBA!

EJBA has donated a park bench with Nora Vaden Holmes at Linear Park. This in conjunction with our EJBA colleague’s at Jefferson Beautification. Stop by, have a seat and ponder on all the good we do in the community. Our 50/50 earnings made this possible and we look forward to our EJBA Utility Box with CVUnola coming soon as well!!!
Thanks to all of you that participate in the monthly 50/50. Because of you we can be part of making East Jefferson a better place.
Please let us know how you are doing or if you have any questions or concerns.
Stay Well and Stay Connected.
Your EJBA Board!
