covington business association

about us

The Covington Business Association (CBA) is a nonprofit organization, representing and advancing the interest of local businesses. The goal of the association is to raise awareness of the businesses that operate in Covington – as well as the shopping, dining and entertainment options that abound here – positioning our city as the economic and cultural hub of our region. We also strive to be a catalyst for cooperation between the City of Covington and all of our member businesses.

Monthly Meetings

CBA members meet on the first Wednesday of every month from 5:30-7:30PM at different businesses throughout the city. Meetings are free, and new businesses are welcome to attend one meeting prior to officially joining the organization. At the meetings, members hear from municipal leaders, local organizations, CBA representatives and other guest speakers about topics that are of importance to the business community. Members also have the opportunity to share information about their own business. Attending meetings is a great way to stay plugged into everything that’s going on in our community.
