Milton Business Council
The Milton Business Alliance (MBA) was formed in 2009 and run by volunteers since its inception. The MBA board spent the last year investigating options to further support Milton businesses and discovered nearly half of their members are also currently members of the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce (GNFCC). The MBA Board believed moving to a council model with the GNFCC provided the most benefit to Milton area businesses. Consequently, the MBA Board voted to merge MBA with GNFCC to create the Milton Business Council.
