Dear friends and supporters; it is time to renew your annual membership with the Downtown Brockton Association. The Downtown Brockton Association provides valuable information to the community from for-profit and non-profit businesses to government agencies. The goal is to keep these groups and organizations updated with business, organizational and government improvements that effect residents and businesses within the downtown area and greater Brockton area. With a scheduled monthly forum, it puts all interested parties at the table for public conversation.
For the past 35 years, we have charged a minimal membership fee to pay for the upkeep of web services and basic staffing to organize meetings and speakers. During the pandemic, we did not collect membership fees knowing that businesses were struggling, and were grateful to receive many hours of volunteerism to support the DBA’s activities- including the very successful full-scale 2022 Brockton Holiday Parade. We always want to create a space that no matter whether you pay a membership fee or not you are always encouraged to join in the conversation, but your dues payments help make additional engagement possible.
With the new website, the growth of the Business Improvement District (BID), and other exciting initiatives we are reaching out to collect membership fees to keep the momentum going. Our website will be updated weekly and offer these benefits:
- A business listing within our directory that has a direct link to your website or social media platform.
- An event calendar that allows you to put your event out to the community at large.
- An opportunity to speak at our monthly meetings as an information platform into your community projects.
- Networking with local business owners and government officials at a yearly event.
Your membership with the DBA allows you or your organization to be directly involved in weighing in on important decisions that will help keep our community strong, accessible and vibrant.
Every member strengthens the DBA’s network and outreach capability. Even if you don’t have the availability to be in attendance at every meeting, your membership dues support the actions and outcomes of the DBA’s activities.
As a member, you make everything we do possible. Please renew your membership with the DBA by making your annual membership dues payment by March 31, 2023. You can pay dues via check, Venmo or PayPal. As a reminder, dues fees are $100.00 for an organization, and $50.00 for an individual. You can find links to payments on our newly re-designed website, www.dbabrockton.org
Thank you for your membership with the Downtown Brockton Association. Your involvement is important and very much a much appreciated. Let’s continue to show our community why Downtown Brockton is a great place to live, work and play!
Mary Waldron, President of the Downtown Brockton Association & The Executive Board
