The Mississippi Hospitality Beverage Association is made up of independent retailers - just like you!  Our membership body represents every area of the state of Mississippi and we all watch the political waters to ensure that our livelihood is being protected.  

Our association also employs a team of seasoned professionals who watch over our business interests during each legislative session.  Their wisdom and insight help our association navigate the legislative waters that effect our businesses.  This relationship is invaluable to the life of our association.

Having their watchful eyes allows our members the freedom to continue running their businesses and stay productive while our governmental affairs personnel are at the Capitol shaping our lives.

We also have a host of team members who watch the national scene to keep our membership abreast of threats on a national level that could impact our business.
