The Plainfield Business Association was founded in 2011 by a few area business owners who met at an Access sponsored program, Our Towns, Our Vision, Our Voices, Dialogue-to-Change. We each attended the program with our own ideas of what we thought our town needed. Little did we know, that each one of us had the same vision, the same passion, and the same dedication to our community. That was just the beginning.
Today, the Plainfield Business Association has filed to become a non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and members. Our goal for the PBA is to continuously accept new members who can help our community grow and to enhance our mission of bringing the area residents and local businesses together to foster a positive community.Plainfield Business Association Award

What is the Mission of the Plainfield Business Association? The mission of the PBA is to unite local businesses and residents to promote local economy and foster a positive community environment.
Who formed the Plainfield Business Association? PBA was started by a very small group of interested and concerned business owners who met and attended an Access sponsored program in 2010 called Our Towns. Our Vision. Our Voices. Dialogue-to-Change program. After completing the program, the group of four developed action items and sought out others within the community who had the same passions, goals, and concerns for our local community who could join in the challenge to help better our community.
Who is a member of the Plainfield Business Association? Plainfield Pride PhotoAny individual who is a resident, business owner, or has a direct interest in the overall improvement of the Plainfield communities can become a member.
How can I become a Member? An individual can become a member by completing a registration form and attending ongoing monthly meetings throughout the year.
Is there a fee to become a Member? There is no fee to become a member at this time; however this has been an ongoing topic of discussion. Since PBA is a newly formed organization, and we are still in our growing stages, this is something that needs to be addressed. We have discussed two options; one that is fee based and one that is non fee based. A non fee based membership would allow an individual to become a member in exchange for a specific number of volunteer hours to the association. Volunteer hours could be obtained by volunteering for an event, contacting business owners, distributing flyers, etc.
