MCBA Newsletter September 2021

Hello, and welcome to the first edition of the Metroplex Business and Civic Association newsletter. The MCBA is a non-partisan, non-profit organization created to help North Texas businesses educate, empower and mobilize their workforce to step up, get involved and make a difference in their communities.

We founded the MCBA earlier this year to help ensure our rapidly growing region continues to thrive as new business and new Texans move into our vibrant region. In just a few short months, we are already making a difference!

We have connected XX DFW businesses with local charitable organizations they can align with to help increase volunteerism and charitable giving across their employee base. We have also completed a very successful “Get Out the Vote” pilot program for one of our member companies. The initiative was so effective that the company saw an increase in voter registration by 65% among their employees for the local May run-off elections and their employee voter turnout rate was 85% higher than the City of Dallas’ voter turnout.

  • MCBA Membership: 95%
  • City of Dallas: 9.63%

We know that this success is just the beginning of a transformation that could positively impact the area for generations to come.

While our area is already among the leading centers of business, growth, and innovation, it is every local business owner’s responsibility to be proactive to ensure that success continues. By engaging with and encouraging your employees to get involved in their communities and become active participants in civic activities, we can continue to nurture an environment that is ripe for growth and prosperity in the DFW region.
