What we're about

The mission of the South Austin Business Association is to promote commerce in South Austin with a commitment to returning value to the community and being a voice for business.

SABA meets weekly at 8am on non-holiday Wednesdays at Casa Garcia, but occasionally has members only events and happy hours in addition to the weekly meeting. The meeting usually consists of a topic or a guest speaker. The networking/socializing begins at 8am, and the formal part of the meeting usually starts by 8:30am.

It is free to attend the weekly meeting, but you are on your own for ordering/paying for food from Casa Garcia.

Membership dues are $75/year for individual members and $250/year for corporate members (which includes one individual member, with each additional member being $25 per). Dues are collected on an annual basis.

There are no restrictions on number of persons from particular industries, and there is no requirement for members to attend the weekly meetings.

29 Seconds to Greatness - empowered elevator speech

Casa Garcia's Mexican Restaurant

Whether you are at a business networking meeting, social function or a chance meeting in public; it is important to be prepared to share your message and make an impact. You have 29 seconds for your “pitch” to make an impression that will have others wanting to do business with you. You want to be the one they remember and call for future business. In this presentation, LeAnn Pashina will share the basics of what goes into our “elevator speech” and how we can utilize this short message into one that will start conversations not end them. Most of us focus on just the words we want to say and ignore what non-verbal signals we are sending. Learn the three areas of communication and how you can begin to utilize them in your favor. She will also cover the basics of what we should say in this 29 second introduction of ourselves and our company. LeAnn Pashina is a National Speaker, Trainer, Sales person and Professional Voice Over Artist. With over 30+ years’ experience in “record-topping” sales, entrepreneurs and businesses hire her to train them how to accurately predict the buying behavior of their clients to skyrocket sales. Her secret weapon is coaching clients to use their voice to build, deliver, and close their perfect presentation. It’s not only what you say, but how you say it that impacts the bottom line. Exceptional communication skills accelerate trust, build instant rapport, and positively influence decision-making behavior. LeAnn can be reached by going to her website www.creativelycommunicate.com. ------ SABA is committed to presenting a variety of programs that cover issues that affect our group both as small business owners and community members. Each week we spend 30 minutes on informal, open networking. After that, our discussions rotate weekly between educational topics, non-profit speakers, speed networking, and member spotlights.
