Chapter History

Chapter's history: In February of 1991, a group of 25 interested Fort Wayne companies got together to discuss the prospect of forming a Fort Wayne MBA Chapter. The idea was unanimously accepted, and the Northeast Chapter was chartered April 14, 1991.



Community Service and Special Projects

The Northeast Chapter regularly puts on and supports events that benefit local charities, including; Mustard Seed, Deeds of Compassion, and Habitat for Humanity.


NEIMBA annual Trivia Night raised a total of $3798 in donations including 19 beds purchased for Beds4Kids program, gift cards and a $1500 donation from the event.  Our charity, Mustard Seed Furniture Bank, a self-funded local nonprofit agency, since 2002 has been focused on their mission “To provide household furnishings to families and individuals as they rebuild their lives after suffering disaster, personal tragedy or other misfortunes.” Assisting families and individuals in Allen and our six-surrounding counties. The  Beds4Kids program has served over 7,567 children through this valuable program. When a family is referred in with children in need of beds, the agency provides each child ages 2-17 with everything they need for a good night’s sleep - a new foundation, mattress and pillow and a gently used bed frame, blanket and sheets.  The NEIMBA is proud to support this awesome charity each year.
