AIBA is about community. As an organization AIBA does a phenomenal job of supporting their members and facilitating connections. AIBA checks all the boxes you look for in a business organization (value in marketing, local advocacy, networking, etc.), but more importantly, AIBA is a community of businesses that care about their team mates and each other. AIBA members have fun and enjoy time around each other. AIBA is a microcosm of what we all know and love about Austin – weird, fun, innovative, savvy and uniquely Austin.
