About Us


The primary focus for the Back Bay Association (BBA) and its 400 members is to ensure the economic vitality of the Back Bay, and to initiate programs that improve, promote, and protect the quality of life in the neighborhood.

Having championed the neighborhood since 1923, the BBA is the most influential business association for Back Bay professionals who value community involvement. This prestigious organization serves as the liaison with the City of Boston for the interests of local businesses, retail merchants, restaurants, hotels, property owners, major corporations, schools, and churches.


The Back Bay Association provides essential resources for businesses in the area. Our store has benefitted greatly by taking advantage of the association’s innovative and effective marketing programs and has developed important business contacts at networking events.
