Meander Valley Business Association exists to advance and grow the local business community. Its role is to represent local businesses, provide support to members and the local community and to lobby on behalf of members to various levels of government. In late 2014, the association changed its name from Deloraine on the Move to include the whole of the Meander Valley.

Our Activities

Recent activity by the association has included publication of a Product and Services Guide as part of the Fightback Campaign, formation of a Women in Business Group, establishing a Facebook presence, organising training seminars and networking get togethers, extending cooperative relationships with other community organisations and supporting local initiatives such as StringFest. Read more about our projects and have a look at our year in review.


The strength of business associations is in their numbers. The annual subscription for MVBA is $50. We do a lot around here!
