The MBL's monthly Membership Meetings are designed to initiate membership dialogue around issues of mutual concern and to provide opportunities for networking. Business leaders and decision makers are encouraged to attend the meetings to discuss specific business opportunities, potential partnerships, and relatable business topics. The corporate sponsors and partners are also given the opportunity to make presentations that share their corporate message of inclusion and economic development to those in attendance.
