Milestone for CABA! Pictured are Vivian Bowers, CABA Chair and Gregory Gallop of Citibank.

The Central Avenue Business Association (CABA) is made up of small businesses located on the historic Central Avenue corridor in Los Angeles.  CABA’s  mission is to improve the quality of life on Central Avenue by promoting business among its members through mutual support, promotion, networking,  advertising, and customer referrals.  CABA creates an awareness of economic and political issues that may affect its members and the Vernon-Central community at large.

Recently, CABA hosted it’s 3rd Annual Small Business Seminar and Resource Fair at the L.A. Mart with featured keynote speaker Javier Madera Camacho who has over 20 years of experience in small business development.  At the Fair, small businesses had access to banks & lenders, resources, and City programs that are beneficial for their business.

CABA is also hosting Sales and Marketing Workshops throughout November at the Constituent Service Center on Central Avenue.  All businesses are welcome to take advantage of these workshops.  Click Here for Details.

Through a collaborative effort between CDTech and Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), CABA has been working to formalize its structure and develop grassroots leadership since 2007.  Opening a bank account was a great milestone for CABA.
