Become a Member
Dear valued member,
Monmouth Business Association (MBA) has been growing and expanding. We are proud of the work our business association is doing. MBA is here to assist and promote the businesses that make our city thrive. The MBA website promotes the business association and its members and events making it a valuable advertising tool that brings people to our great downtown. The MBA facebook page is a vibrant active page with promotions of events and special business offerings as they happen. Not to mention the events we assist with yearly – Music in the Park – a mainstay, a traffic draw to our businesses. The Halloween Spooktacular, the Welcome to Monmouth and Independence event, which introduces new Western students to the local businesses, Making Spirits Bright, and more.
As you know the cost of doing business has increased for most of us. We want to make you aware of our increase in membership fees beginning Sept. 15, 2023. Membership dues for the coming year will be $75.00. This helps offset the cost of website usage, printing costs, increases in advertising, and event promotion as well as incendiary items that occasionally come up that are not anticipated.
Please use this link to connect to the registration form. Just fill out the form, and choose how you would like to pay your dues and you will be an official member! Here are your choices:
- Check: Mail a check to Monmouth Business Association, 151 Main Street W, Monmouth, OR 97361
- Cash: Put the cash in an envelope and deliver to our treasurer, Kevin Raschko at Umpqua Bank.
- Credit Card: We will send you an online invoice and you can pay securely online. A $3 fee is added for this option.
If you have any questions or ideas regarding improvement to our association please reach out to any of our MBA board members.
