The goal of the New American Job Fair is to connect qualified New Americans with good employment opportunities. It takes place twice a year at the Moorhead Center Mall. Opportunities to help out include running the registration table, assisting New Americans with their employment applications, and helping to recruit companies to be employers.
If you can hold out a cup of water or Powerade while cheering loudly, then you can help out at this event! The Fargo Marathon is one of the most prominent events of the year in the FM Area. The MBA has a water station right as the race crosses the river from Fargo into Moorhead. This is a great opportunity to show your enthusiasm and Moorhead Pride and to welcome hundreds of visitors into our community.
The MBA Golf Tournament is a great annual fundraiser that the MBA puts on to raise money for the 5656Oohs and Aahs Fourth of July Fireworks Display. Our planning committee decides on the prizes, the swag, the mini-games, the menu, and more! It all culminates in a day full of fun, raising cash for a good cause.
There are a number of ways to help out with the 5656Ooh and Aah Fourth of July Fireworks Display, from parking and security to planning and volunteer coordination. Visit the event page for more information.

The MBA Annual Meeting in April is our chance to celebrate the successes and accomplishments of the MBA throughout the year, as well as to recognize our current board members and elect new ones. It's a classy night of music, good food, and celebratory spirit. This is a ticketed event and registration needs a few hands to help check people in and get set up.
Every Wednesday morning at the Moorhead Fryn' Pan we have our Let's Talk Business breakfast event, which features a new guest speaker every week! You can volunteer to give some announcements and introduce the guest speaker. This is a great opportunity to pitch an event or a cause of your own that you'd like our members to know about.
We are always looking to grow the ranks of the MBA, and we do so primarily through our Membership Task Force, which develops recruitment materials and identifies businesses in town which could be approached for membership. If you're well connected or would like to meet some more people and get some more hands-on involvement with the MBA, this would be an ideal committee for you to join.
The MBA does lots of communications, from our weekly emails to social media posts on Facebook to print advertising and event promotion, keeping the Communications Committee pretty busy all the time! If you have an interest in marketing, branding and communications, or if you're simply looking for further opportunities to get involved with the MBA, help spread the word around town by joining this dynamic group.
Looking for your business to get a little extra exposure to the MBA? Trying to get a few people in the door of a new site? Consider hosting a 560 Connect event at your business. 560 Connect is an informal networking event hosted at various locations around Moorhead. This mixer-style occasion provides attendees with an opportunity to share a beverage or snack and discuss what's going on in Moorhead these days.
