Supporting Your Members As The Pandemic Continues

Join us Monday, April 27, on Zoom, “Supporting Your Members As The Pandemic Continues”

We know that our alliances and networks are a vital lifeline for local independent businesses. AMIBA has big plans for building structures to continue supporting you in that role, and we also know you could use some immediate help with ideas to help your members weather the storm.

Together, AMIBA represents over 60 communities with this same goal, and we have all put forth our own unique efforts to support our members. Join us as we come together to share what’s been successful at an IBA level, and to hear from you about where your successes and challenges have been. (This event is also open to non-AMIBA member organizations who are ‘Buy Local’ focused.)
