Being the voice for Midland’s business community means the Midland Business Alliance (MBA) advocates for strategic business issues that advance pro-business platforms at the local and state level. By harnessing the power of our more than 3,000 businesses, our collective voice is stronger than any of us on our own.
Learning What Matters
The MBA will regularly take the pulse of both our businesses and the community at large to see what public policy issues and priorities matter the most — and then act on them.
Once these high-priority topics have been identified, we will convene the necessary groups and resources to influence them. Depending on the issue, this could include working with local and state elected officials, related advocacy groups, as well as regional partners and organizations.
Through programs, surveys and effective communications, we will connect with local businesses and key stakeholders regarding policy and the most important legislative issues. Keeping our business community informed about key issues is also critical.
