What is the PBA?
The Plainfield Business Association was founded in 2011 by a few area business owners who met at an Access sponsored program, Our Towns, Our Vision, Our Voices, Dialogue-to-Change. We each attended the program with our own ideas of what we thought our town needed. Little did we know, that each one of us had the same vision, the same passion, and the same dedication to our community. That was just the beginning.
Today, the Plainfield Business Association is an approved 501(c) non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and members. Our goal for the PBA is to continuously accept new members who can help our community grow and to enhance our mission of bringing the area residents and local businesses together to foster a positive community.
Our past achievements include the Hanging of the Flags and Flag Ceremony in honor of all our Veteran’s, The 2011, 2012 and 2013 Pride in Plainfield events, Holiday Hop and the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremonies.
On October 27, 2011, the PBA was selected by the Access Community Action Agency to receive the Community Spirit Award.
