As President of the Midtown Association, I value the opportunity to champion our mission to promote healthy business, quality of life, and quality of place in Missoula. I believe our efforts today will result in measurable successes afforded to the next generation of Midtowners that live, work and play in this community; that is the prism that is looked through when we engage as an association to influence plans and policies shaping the future of the Midtown district. Providing opportunities for the next generation is at the core of our mission, and our hope is that the work we do will result in the opportunity for those raised in Missoula to remain here and obtain gainful employment with the ability to raise their families in one of the greatest cities on earth.
To be an effective organization and advocate for solutions that impact Midtown Missoula and our community at large, we need a strong voice. That strong voice comes from a robust and engaged membership of businesses and residents alike. We have intentionally positioned our organization to grow and represent this voice through established working committees, signature events, membership recruitment, and community engagement. We currently have 50 members consisting of residents, businesses, and non-profit organizations, and our numbers are growing.
We believe there is intrinsic value to becoming a member of the Missoula Midtown Association, including community promotion, news and information updates, networking and camaraderie, and effective advocacy, all focused squarely on enhancing the livability of the Midtown district.
If you are currently a member of the Missoula Midtown Association, thank you for your support and engagement. If you are not a member and would like to become engaged, check out our website and join us for our monthly Midtown Mixer to see what we are all about. Our next Midtown Mixer will be at OnX Hunt located at 1926 Brooks Street.
