Welcome to the website of the West Virginia Eastern Panhandle Business Association!
The EPBA is an organization of businessmen and women who either own businesses in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia or who know that businesses are the engine that drives economies in America.
The association has been called “A Chamber of Commerce with Attitude!” It is a Political Action Committee that advocates for business interests with the West Virginia legislature, teaming with the Berkeley County/Martinsburg Chamber of Commerce in hosting a Legislative Luncheon before and after the yearly legislative session. Prior to the legislative session, members of the Association and the Chamber meet with House of Delegate and Senate members to present issues of the business community that need addressing by Charleston. After the session, the emphasis shifts to a report by the legislators of actions that they accomplished or report on items that may require additional effort.
Every election year the EBPA sends out questionnaires to candidates for statewide and local offices to determine those that are clearly dedicated to the business community. This process is involved and adequately assures that only those candidates that are business friendly obtain the endorsement of the association. The endorsement process is further explained in the Endorsement section of the website.
