 Welcome to the Mattawan Business Association 2024 calendar year!

We are so excited to have you as a new or returning member and look forward to finding ways to help support your business and our community together. The MBA has an open, rolling enrollment. This means that we have new members joining during each month throughout the year. While we would love for you to join us immediately, we also welcome you anytime you decide that joining is right for you.

During a normal year, the MBA participates in and hosts a multitude of events. During each event, we look for ways to include our members either through direct participation (volunteering, hosting a table, etc.) or through donations. We will include information about your business so the Mattawan Community can also get to know you! This years events will consist of :

In addition to events, we also contribute to many different organizations throughout the year with monetary sponsorships!
