Membership

Membership in HBA

Being a member of the HBA of Central Missouri affords you a multitude of benefits. But like all good associations, membership is not just about what the association can do for you, but also what you can do for the association.   You get out of the HBA what you put into the HBA.   The impact our association has had on regulations and policies within our community can be directly attributed to our active members, leaders and officers.

The core value and focus of our membership is what makes HBA of Central MO both successful and meaningful.  The dedication and engagement from our members is what drives the realization of the many benefits of membership and a return on investment, and ultimately, how well the association serves its member and the community.

Controlling cost is an essential part of running a successful business.    Smart business people know the benefit received for the price you pay  is the most important thing in managing finances. HBA membership is only .75 cents a day, and the benefits of membership far outweighs those of not being a member and letting regulations get out of control.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
