As a member of the Southampton Business & Professional Association you have an opportunity to meet business people and to network on a local basis. The Monthly Luncheon Meetings are held at 11:45 am the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Davisville Church, Southampton PA. We have interesting speakers on a variety of topics; some are educational, some are fun, all are enlightening.
Formed in 1953 and incorporated in 1954 as the Southampton Business Men's Association, the purpose of the Association was "to promote the growth, progress and betterment of our community and for the mutual help of our members". There were originally 87 Charter members. Through the years, the Southampton Business and Professional Association has been a leader in providing projects and programs to benefit the community. It sponsored the arrival of Santa during the sixties and spearheaded the drive to install Holiday Lights for the business district during the winter holidays. This is a commitment it stills supports today.
The association maintains the Veteran's Memorial on the southeast corner of Second Street Pike and Street Road.
The Association sponsored Southampton's Ball in 1976 honoring the nation's Bicentennial anniversary and the Township's Tricentennial Ball in 1985, commemorating Southampton's 300th birthday.
The Southampton Business and Professional Association invites business or professional people living or working in Upper Southampton or the adjacent communities to join and help us help Southampton to continue to be "a nice place to live".
