The NPBPA holds member meetings to inform, educate, and create a forum for our members to exchange ideas and experiences.  Our meetings are also a great opportunity for members to network with other New Providence merchants and professionals.
By bringing our members together about once a quarter, we aim to build a proactive business community with members who work together to raise the profile of the businesses in our town.  Together, we plan, sponsor and execute terrific community events, and work together to encourage local customers to frequent the businesses who serve our community.
Each meeting is held at a sponsoring member’s facility, and refreshments are served during a half hour of networking, prior to the beginning of the meeting.  An interesting topic is chosen for every meeting, which is presented by one or more guest speakers.  (We invite you to look over past meetings in the table below for examples.)
