2020 Letter from the President

The East Cobb Business Association’s highest mission is to help East Cobb and our member businesses grow and prosper.  Our business programs, community events and networking meetings are specifically designed to provide a robust format that supports this mission.  The ECBA promotes excellent service, professionalism, profitability and leadership development.  In addition to delivering business building and leadership education, we support the branding, marketing, and advertising efforts of our members as a value-added partner. 

If you’re new to East Cobb or want to expand into our vibrant community, membership in the East Cobb Business Association should be a quintessential part of your business plan.  If you’re already doing business in our community and want to achieve a higher level of success, it’s time to take advantage of our dynamic lineup of events and networking opportunities.  Whether your business model is B2C or B2B, we can help you achieve your vision of success in East Cobb and throughout the entire metro area.  The ECBA is an organization that fosters strategic alliances between businesses, professionals and the community.  Our culture of sharing provides an environment that will expand your referral network and give you a friendly place to provide and seek reliable recommendations.  We’re all here to support one another!   


The good news is spreading, the East Cobb Business Association continues to be one of the fastest growing business associations in the state.  The membership of the ECBA has grown to over 200 businesses and is now one of the largest business associations in Cobb County.  Our economic impact is substantial, businesses are prospering, and our community is flourishing with growth.  To keep the momentum going, ECBA has continued our tradition of adding strategic events to our line-up while enhancing member services by providing additional resources and special programs.  We’ve strategically designed our 2020 scheduled with over 80 events to deliver more opportunities and expand the benefits of membership.  If volunteerism and giving back to your community is important to you, our association collaborates with a wide variety of non-profits and charities to do good works in our community.  These strategic partnerships help all of us at ECBA make East Cobb an even better place to live, work and play. 


The East Cobb Business Association is thriving with new projects and initiatives to help you reach your personal & professional goals.  We offer numerous ways to showcase your skills, abilities and commitment to excellence throughout the year. Please visit to explore opportunities and feel free to contact me with questions about programs, event and membership.  “Now is the Perfect Time to Join, so Come Aboard, Fully Engage and Grow with Us.”       


I’m excited about all the new initiatives and great events we’ve planned for the 2020 schedule.  A special thanks goes out to our Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, and all our ECBA Members for their unwavering commitment to make the ECBA the best business association anywhere.  It’s a privilege and a honor to serve as your President again this year.
