  • Luncheons

    PABA is proud to present monthly luncheons at our partner location - ROCK BOTTOM BREWERY (Upstairs) on each 2nd Wednesday of the month.

    At these luncheons we like to mix it up with presentations from our Membership, Community Organizations, and/or speakers on local policy.  Networking always takes place at 11:30am until we kick off our meeting at noon.  

    If you have a topic or know of a speaker/presentation that you would like to see at one of our events, please let us know!

    PABA offers a number of powerful networking opportunities each week through its Biz Builders program. At each meeting you may introduce your business, meet other business people, and learn in depth about one of our member or partner businesses in a brief presentation. We also take a moment during Biz Builders to offer testimonials for other PABA businesses so that you can hear firsthand about the quality and breadth of PABA's members.

    Biz Builders are available to PABA members free of charge and we invite prospective members to join us for up to 3 meetings free of charge, and $10 per meeting thereafter.

    After Hours is a monthly evening gathering that was created to broaden your social and business contacts, visit with friends, and learn something interesting about PABA members’ businesses while having fun and enjoying a relaxing evening out. 

    After Hours is held at various venues and hosted by members only.  Typically, the member/s choose their place of business to hold the event so they can be showcased. Food and beverages are always served.

    This two hour event is also open to all friends, contacts, and adult family members.  Please feel free to bring prospective members and others in the community that would like enjoy an evening out. Outreach to allied and/or comparable organizations is constantly encouraged. Strengthening PABA’s community relationships is the main purpose of After Hours.

    Please check the website after the 5th of each month to find out the up and coming After Hours information and location.

    If you’re interested in hosting, or hearing more about its specifics please send an email to info@paba.com.
