How it all Began
Founded in January of 2003 by a small group of Deerfield business owners,
the Deerfield Business Association (DBA) was formed to help ascertain and
address the issues facing new and established businesses in Deerfield and
the surrounding towns. It quickly became apparent, at the first official
meeting in February, that a cooperative effort to expand the economic growth
of the community would be welcomed by many local business owners… and so,
the DBA was born.
Since that day, the DBA has become an increasingly strong voice for the
business community in Deerfield.
