NEBA Membership

Membership Details

Through our monthly meetings, social media, newsletter, events, and more, we connect you to the movers and shakers of the Northeast side of the Grand Rapids area. When our local businesses and organizations are strong, our community is strong! We are always interested in bringing on members who own and manage businesses or who represent local government and other municipal organizations like schools and law enforcement.


Right now, meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month from 7:00am – 8:30am. Open networking time starts at 7:00am.

From 7:30-8am, it’s information time! Topics have included the Plainfield Township “Reimagine Plainfield” efforts, health & wellness, financial guidance, marketing, and more!

From 8:00-8:30am, we offer networking breakout activities to get to know each other better. This is your chance to build relationships to help you and your business grow!
