About Us

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 12:00 noon the 4th Tuesday of every other month. 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.

The association maintains the Veteran’s Memorial on the southeast corner of Second Street Pike and Street Road.

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”.
