Join Our Organization
The Victoria Business Owners Association (VBOA) is a 501 c(6) non-profit organization and was formed in January 2010 with three objectives in mind:
Lead the progress and growth of local business and community
Discovering Victoria through building relationships
Leadership, Engagement, Educate, Growth-focused and Service
In the fall of 2009, Victoria business owners met to discuss opportunities of hosting community events in downtown Victoria. The resounding response was “let’s sponsor more community events;” grass-roots business development. Local business owners realized that an expansion of critical local business development activities could be folded into this prospective organization. Envisioned was an organization similar to those of downtown Excelsior and 50th & France. Funds derived from activities and events would be used to drive philanthropic projects for the Community. We found that local businesses wanted a new business development solution where they could pool their resources in pursuit of shared advertising and promotion of Victoria Commerce. Victoria business owners wanted to grow Volksfest & Art Fair, and bring a focus to the “Art Fair” component recently added to the slate of event activities. Thus, the VBOA was born.
