WHAT IS THE HERTEL BUSINESS ASSOCIATION?
The Hertel Business Association (HBA) is a not-for-profit, chartered organization of local business people and community members. We volunteer to promote the economic and commercial well-being of Hertel Avenue businesses which in turn makes a positive contribution to the North Buffalo community. Your membership is so important to its continuing successes!
The business members of the Hertel Business Association are North Buffalo's most valued resource! Therefore, the HBA works toward making our members' businesses more successful through sharing information and seeking out opportunities which benefit them. Please make them your first choice when supporting all of the small businesses on Hertel Avenue! But that's only a part of what the HBA is. We have a tremendous resource in our resident and community members, who also play an important part in the decision making process. Together we are making a difference!
The Hertel Business Association's (HBA) is a dedicated group of volunteers who work to provide the resources, events and benefits to our members, all of whom share a connection and love of Hertel Avenue. We welcome everyone to join us in making a difference!
