Check out our Events Calendar

MESBA is known for offering fun events and informative programs throughout the year, allowing members to extend their networks and stimulate their businesses. Some of the events you may see listed on our calendar include ribbon cuttings, grand openings, networking events, committee meetings, and pop-up events.

At this time, all events and programs will be held virtually or outside (following best practices due to the Dane County ordinance re: COVID-19). We anticipate adding more events soon – we are just waiting to hear back on a few more details.

Whether you’re looking to network to meet someone new, reconnect with a familiar face, gain more knowledge, or get involved with the community, we’ve got something for everyone!
