Welcome To

East Fort Worth Business Association

We invite every business owner, professional person, firm, corporation or non-profit organization, to join us for our monthly meetings where you will meet other business owners, individuals and city officials that influence our lives.

The mission is still the same today for this long-lived organization. It was founded in 1974 as a 501(c)4 so that it could be involved in non-partisan political issues. Working with the neighborhoods and Fort Worth City Government offices for the betterment of East Fort Worth sometimes leads to involvement in the political arena.

I hope you join us at our next meeting.

Mike Shedd, President, 2022

Candidate Forum

In April we will be hosting a Candidate’s Forum led by the President of our PAC, Bill Schwennsen. City Council elections are this May, and we now have 2 new council districts that include many in our group.

If you are interested in getting involved with our PAC, or helping to vet candidates, please let us know. We hope to have the PAC make our first of many candidate endorsements for state and local elections following this forum and need the involvement of our diverse membership to ensure we look at every perspective and point of view.
