The Meridian Area Business Association (MABA) was founded in 1997. MABA's founding members wanted to create a way for local business leaders to interact on a monthly basis through a monthly member meeting. Over the years, MABA has changed meeting locations and the meeting has changed a little, but the core values of MABA have not.
Recently through a strategic planning process that started in 2014 that mapped out new goals for MABA, the current Board of Directors is working to fulfill that strategic plan. Some of the events that have defined MABA throughout the years are the Monthly Member Networking Meeting, the former MABA Expo, the Annual MABA Golf Outing and many various fundraisers and networking events. The addition of the Business Development Grant Program, the Joan Smith Memorial Scholarship Program and Philanthropic Grant Program have been a large part of this plan.
