The Key Peninsula Business Association (KPBA) provides businesses and other community interest’s opportunities to develop commercial, informational, and social networks. The organization is active in promoting local businesses through a variety of channels, including bi-monthly meetings featuring speakers who provide timely economic, political and community information. In addition the KPBA holds periodic social events and offers promotional opportunities, including an informational brochure, and website.
Social outreach opportunities include non-profit sponsorship, annual scholarship awards, and participation in community events. Participants have the unique opportunity to interact with a broad range of community leaders supporting diverse interests, leading to a better understanding of community needs, initiatives, and valued characteristics. This understanding can assist members in better defining their business and its relationship to the community at large.
A critical component of the KPBA is its effort in supporting community development, which enriches the character and Key Peninsula values. This is reflected in the membership of the organization. Any given meeting will include individuals across diverse backgrounds. You will likely be sitting across from a banker, a non-profit executive director, or a retired nurse, all sharing the common goal of enhancing life on the Key. Elected officials on both the local and state level are members and regularly attend meetings. This diversity can lead to an opportunity to broaden the reach and focus of one’s business as well support the health and vitality of the community.
So come join us! We welcome your thoughts, interests, and value your contributions!
