  • Monthly Luncheon Announcement

    In light of evolving recommendations for social distancing to slow or prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID- 19), the Brooklyn Center Business Association will not hold its monthly luncheon in March. Thank you to our host, Embassy Suites; they have been flexible with us in this regard, even before regulatory directives would have made the meeting impossible. The BCBA board will reevaluate the scenario for future luncheons at its April board meeting/ call.

    We will share forthcoming BCBA program updates via email, here on website and on our Facebook page.

  • Plan Ahead Calendar

    Event details will be announced as the specific dates approach, and changes may be made to this calendar outline.  Please become a member today to start receiving email invitations to these events and to enjoy a significant discount on monthly luncheon fees.
