Attraction, Retention & Expansion

The MBA is dedicated to building a diversified business community that supports retention and expansion of existing businesses and supports the attraction and creation of new businesses and business sectors. From networking and business development programming to comprehensive retention visits, we offer a diverse portfolio of support tools.

Community Engagement

The MBA is actively engaged in Midland’s business community — whether it’s by collaborating with local government on topics important to the business community, working with existing businesses to assure continued success and growth or fostering relationships and regular networking opportunities among our businesses.

Planning for Success

Supporting businesses now is one part of the equation. Anticipating future trends is also part of the mix. The MBA plans to develop a 10-year business strategy for Midland, promoting an environment for continued business investment and growth. This will drive decision-making and help the community prosper for years to come.
