The MDBA holds regular meetings on a variety of topics which are free for members to attend.
Offers opportunities for members to advertise and promote their business to the wider community. Again many of these opportunities are offered to members at no cost to their business.
Annually the MDBA produces a Community Telephone Directory. Advertising in this Directory is sold exclusively to member businesses. This incredibly useful local guide is delivered FREE to around 1,800 households in the area. As well as an advertising section of local businesses, the directory also features a valuable community information reference section, a map, and the local residential telephone numbers.
The MDBA maintains a community notice board located inside the Māpua Village Mall. This enables members to display their brochures for the public to look at and take away. (A small annual charge applies for this opportunity).
The MDBA produces a map of the local district for the benefit of visitors to the area. The map is available as sheets of 50 per pad or as folded DLE brochures and is available free from many outlets and visitor locations throughout the wider Nelson Region. Advertising space is reserved for members only.
