History of the ABA

The Addison Business Association history dates back to January 23, 1975 when a group of business executives and professionals from the Town of Addison gathered to discuss was to improve communications between the business community and the city government and city council. The group was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in March, 1976 with the stated purpose of "helping to build Addison into a great and prosperous city".

The ABA has grown into an organization that includes active executives from retail, financial, manufacturing, construction professional, hospitality and the numerous other industries in the area. The ABA has effectively represented the business community and its concerns in Addison since our beginning in 1975 and our goal is to continue to serve the business community and improve Addison and its business climate.
