2014 a great year for Sedona Village Business Association

Happy 2015 to you all! I hope that your holidays were filled with family, food and relaxation.

The Holidays have historically been a nice boost in customer traffic prior to the slower month of January. However this year, I feel the business community has much to look forward to. This month, the Village business community should see a surge in visitors to the area attending the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl games hosted in Glendale. The Sedona Marathon, Waste Management Open, and Sedona Film Festival and other great events will also be happening over the next couple of months. All of these events coupled with lower gas prices bode well for a "busier than normal" January and February.

SVBA is also gearing up to have a busy start to the year. We will be holding monthly meetings on the third Wednesday of every month at 4 p.m. at the Sedona Hilton Resort. If you need a reminder we will be posting meeting times at

The meetings are for all who would like to attend but if you have a topic you would like us to talk about please send it over to no later than a week prior to the meeting.

We will add it to the agenda and make sure we allocate the time for discussion. Our focus this year will be to continue to drive membership, strengthen our marketing, and have a couple of key community events here in the Village.

A special thanks to all of you that donated to the "Light the Village" event in 2014. A special thanks to the merchants and owners of the Sedona Village Outlet Mall.

Finally, to all of you who have stopped by Chevron or snagged me on the street to give me your positive thoughts on these articles and SVBA I greatly appreciate it.

I had a lot of fun and made some great new friendships working on getting the SVBA up and running again in 2014. I hope that I can improve in 2015 by showing you all why I feel SVBA is such an important organization to this community. Thank you again and I hope that your year, both business wise and personally, starts out with a bang!
