Founded in 1973, the Downtown Business Association (DBA) is a non-profit membership association representing the arts, retail, restaurants, banking, utilities, city government and other various types of businesses, with a common interest of strengthening the downtown area. We promote downtown St. Petersburg as a vibrant, safe and friendly waterfront environment with outstanding entertainment, cultural attractions, educational facilities, retail, art galleries, medical care resources, architectural design and business opportunities.
MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS
Our membership meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month, from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m., at various locations hosted by member businesses.

We hope to see you at our next event
Every so often, we have an after-hours social gathering with no formal agenda, just an opportunity for members and prospective members to mix & mingle and get to know one another better. These events are held at various member businesses, particularly our restaurant and bar members for whom hosting an early morning meeting isn't ideal.
