Member Spotlight - January 19: The 2015 Directory

This week’s Member Spotlight is dedicated to the Superstars of Inland Northwest Business Alliance, the bread and butter of this business community, the individuals and businesses that make this organization thrive. To celebrate the upcoming release of the Business Directory, we’re giving you the inside info on what’s new this year.

Cover on Monitor
It all starts here.

Various new categories and members have been added and edited, deleted and added again at owner’s request. 2015’s final product includes these new categories and services with the new members in their respective category.

Pet Services > Mercantile: Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile 

Public Relations:  Thinking Cap has expanded to offer its services in this area.

Health and Wellness Education: Inland Northwest Health Services has relocated to this category while Better Health Together joins the directory for the first time.

Health and Medical: CHAS, Rockwood Health Systems join this renamed category.

Home Care: Stay at Home Adult Care

Yoga: Tim Wichland Yoga brings us peace of mind with this new category.

Retirement Community: Rockwood Retirement

Event Planning: Events! by Karen Herford

Massage Therapy: Healing Balance Massage revitalizes this category since its been awhile

Additionally, the 2015 INBA Directory may be the only business chamber directory to feature a Marijuana category, featuring businesses Four Twenty Friendly and Kouchlock Productions.

Internal proofs
The editing and proofing process sadly requires sacrificing a small tree.

The INBA directory has been produced by Thinking Cap Design for the last sixteen years and is printed by Lawton Printing, a member since 2013. It takes hundreds of staff hours  and several internal rounds of proofs to complete the files. Every graphic is checked for color accuracy and every page is meticulously spellchecked… manually. Innocent bystanders that wander into Thinking Cap’s offices were also recruited to provide a fresh set of eyes on sheets of directory drafts. 

The process begins again as soon as the directory is sent to to printer. Collecting membership confirmations and business advertisements will be a year-round process. We have done our best  to assure all member contact information is accurate. For any questions, comments, or revisions (for next year’s directory) please contact Membership Manager, Christopher Zilar, at
