This non-profit association was established in 1992 by a group of business owners, leaders, organizations and residents in the community. Originally it was called WBBA, The West Broadway Business Association. The boundaries stretched from Ninth Street west to the river and three blocks north and south of Broadway. In 2006 the name was changed to the West Louisville Business Association and the boundaries were expanded north and south from Muhammad Ali Blvd to Algonquin Parkway.
The association shows how a cooperative effort can stretch limited resources a long way. WLBA is here to work with area businesses, SBA, Kentucky State, Louisville Metro Government, GLI and other business associations to stimulate economic development and growth in the Western Louisville area. We also work with schools, churches, neighborhood and service organizations in the area to advocate, inform, improve and beautify our community. Together we are making it a better place to start or grow a business, work, live and play.
We therefore pledge to promote the most comprehensive initiatives and information to you at all times. In this way we can best help you to grow your business and to keep you knowledgable of the training, services, events and products that can assist in doing so. This can also allow you to have a role in the development of future industry here in Western Louisville. We at the WLBA understand that you are the reason for our existence and we therefore always endeavor to bring value to your commitment to us.
WLBA strives to stimulate business development, awareness and growth opportunities through networking, member services and educational seminars
Throughout the course of our mission, your own opinion, expertise and direction are always appreciated. In this way, we can best ensure that this association continues to take into consideration the perspectives, interests and expertise of everyone involved. We will start our evening business to business networking events in May. If you would like to sponsor or host and event or monthly meeting at your place of business please let us know.
