MABPA’s sphere of influence and extensive civic engagement spans across the local, state and federal levels of both the public and private sectors.  MABPA is well represented on governing boards and other major decision making forums in the San Diego region that shape policy and create impact in our priority areas of Business, Education, Government, and Community Leadership.  MABPA members and key community leaders convene to share critical, timely, and relevant information on issues that affect our communities and in turn collaborate to chart the proper course of action and create solutions.  Our roster of featured speakers and topics is formed by those critical issues brought to us by our members, elected officials, and community partners.  As we continue to hone and convene leadership, the relevance, continuity and connectedness of our network will make for strengthened communities.
