Welcome to GABA, the Glendale-Area Business Association.

We’re a chamber organization designed by businesses…for businesses.

We’re new and registration is now open for the official January 2020 start-up.

Expect great deals and incentives for introductory members.

Did you know? Businesses currently provide 50% of Glendale’s Tax Base.  It’s essential the North Shore continues to thrive with strong economic growth.  A strong business climate is achieved through city support, community collaboration, and an active labor force. Therefore, in January 2020, Glendale will re-launch the Glendale Convention, Visitors, and Business Association…originally founded in 1988.

The Glendale-Area Business Association will operate under (dba) WELCOME TO GLENDALE.

WELCOME TO GLENDALE (The Convention, Visitors, and Business Association) recognizes the importance of providing a business association that meets the needs of its members.  To design GABA, hundreds of local businesses shared data on forming the new business chamber.  With an overwhelming consensus, businesses asked for:

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
MARKETING TOOLS
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
OUTREACH AND COMMUNITY SERVICE
BUSINESS RESOURCES

Although all are welcome to join GABA, we focus our initiatives on Milwaukee’s seven North Shore Communities: Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood, and Whitefish Bay.

GABA is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors.  The primary funding will come from Membership Fees.  Additionally, funding will derive from event registrations, advertising co-op projects, professional development courses, and sponsorships.

If members join in JANUARY, they get an introductory special!
