BBA HISTORY ~ In spring of 1991, Robert Grovenstein, D.C.
(Chiropractor, Retired) founded the Beaches Business Association (BBA) by asking other retired
presidents of the Northside Businessman's Club to help him start the
Held at the Sea Turtle Hotel, on the ocean in
Atlantic Beach, was the first club breakfast meeting. Many business leaders from the Jacksonville
beaches' communities attended. Due to
the over-whelming support of BBA, breakfast changed to weekly luncheon
meetings, which resulted in tripling the membership!
Outgrowing several meeting places, members now meet at the Blue Typhoon Bar and Grill on Monday, arriving at 11:30 a.m. for networking. Speakers that are of business interest to the
members are scheduled.
The association collaborates with other community leaders on
projects, such as the Wonderwood Expressway and the Mayport Road/Atlantic
Boulevard fly over. In addition, BBA
provides scholarships to students, who reside in the Beaches community, to
attend a local college with a concentration in business.
