There has to be a reason why I have stayed involved for so long with this Association from the inception. One main thing. The friendly people. Originally I wanted to expand my business near home in West Kendall and it worked! But, the people and the knowledge and the friendships are the real bonus. I encourage all of you to join GKBA. Stay involved, make the commitment and stay focused. It pays off.

The Greater Kendall Business Association has proven itself to be an outstanding organization to be associated with. My experience over the six years as a member has been that of a welcoming atmosphere at each and every event held by this group. There are always members willing to introduce each other on social and professional level and for great referrals. As the owner of Webley’s Interiors, I have found this G. K. B. A. as the perfect way to introduce my company to the Greater Kendall area.
A superb place to network with professionals, I highly endorse this association.

The Greater Kendall Business Association has been a great decision for my business. I made immediate business contacts during the first event I attended. The membership is a priceless and invaluable resource that paid for itself immediately.. They really care about their members and their future success. Therefore, they will facilitate you in whatever way they can. For small businesses, this investment will be one of the best ones to make with outstanding return. The quality of people/businesses you meet at the networking events are very helpful in getting your business exposure and making you feel at home.
GKBA is a valuable association for business success!

The Greater Kendall Business Association gave me the opportunity to develop many personal and professional relationships which were of great importance to my career as Chair of Continuing Education and Professional Development at the Kendall Campus of Miami Dade College. Through partnerships with many of the members, programs were created and offered at no cost to community businesses. As I retire from MDC and pursue a new career as a professor in higher education, I will take these relationships with me. I appreciate all the opportunities for networking which GKBA provides for its members and look forward to continuing being active in the organization.”
