Welcome to PABA: home of the Plover Area Business Association! 

The Plover Area Business Association was established in 1979 to give Plover businesses a stronger voice in the Stevens Point Chamber of Commerce. Today PABA continues to be the voice of the business community. The purpose of the association is to foster and advance business and community interests throughout the Greater Plover Area.

PABA works with the Village of Plover to develop a stronger community, retain existing businesses, and draw new businesses to the area. PABA draws on its alliances with the Portage County Business Council, the Stevens Point Area CVB, and Portage County Planning & Zoning.  PABA events, webinars and group activities provide both educational and social opportunities within the PABA membership. These events are great networking tools to help businesses develop new prospects while learning about their fellow Plover area business partners. 

PABA prides itself in giving back to the community and members through grant and scholarship programs as well as working with Operation Bootstrap with our Brat Fry and Christmas Presents from the Heart campaigns.

Membership in PABA is open to any individual, organization, or firm which has commercial interests in the Greater Plover Area.
