Jump On Board for the Cross-Country Stronger Together Tour



Coming to a City Near You!

With the approval of the ABA and B&CMA merger by their respective memberships last month, Robb MacKie and Dave Van Laar are on the road to meet with members. They want to hear about your business needs, discuss what keeps you up at night and share how the merger will offer new opportunities to your company. View their “tour” schedule below. There are plenty of opportunities to engage with them – see how below.
