Join the Murphys Business Community!


We are currently meeting virtually on the first Thursday of alternating months at 8:30 am via Zoom.  Please contact us to obtain information on how to join us.

If you do business in or around the Murphys area, we invite you to become a part of our very dynamic and active organization.  The MBA meets on alternating months on the first Thursday of the month at 8:30 am to discuss upcoming events (we normally take January, March, May, July, September, and November off and our December meeting is the tree trimming event), how to promote Murphys, and other topics of interest to local business owners.  Everyone is welcome to join us at our membership meetings, but you may want to verify meeting dates in advance as we do sometimes change them or skip a meeting. The board meets monthly, most often on the Friday or Monday before our membership meetings.  Anybody who wishes to present an idea or discuss a concern with the board is welcome to join us…just let us know so we can let you know exactly when & where we’ll be meeting.  We also host several evening mixers each year. You can always contact us at

You may join our mailing list to be reminded of upcoming meetings and keep abreast of our activities by e-mailing us at
