President's Message

Boozhoo, members!

The Anishnawbe Business Professionals Association is very excited to announce the return of Prosperity Northwest after a hiatus of nearly three years.

We’ll be hosting this exciting opportunity in partnership with the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce, and we hope to welcome the members of both organizations as well as the public to the Valhalla Inn & Conference Center on February 15th, 2023.

Prosperity Northwest is an excellent opportunity to foster business to business growth, network, and reconnect with familiar faces many of us have gotten used to seeing only via zoom calls. There will also be a featured lineup of speakers and sessions throughout the day, as well as an After Business to mix and socialize after a long few years.

Exhibitor space is now available, and we have rates available for ABPA members to purchase exhibit space, corner booths, and additional booth attendance below.

There are sponsorship opportunities available by inquiry, and we look forward to working alongside the Thunder Bay Chamber to bring the region this valuable economic development opportunity!
