We invite all local businesses to join LIBA and let your independent voice be heard!
LIBA has many amazing benefits, and is an affordable investment in the success of your company and our community. We feel the primary benefit is being part of a collective voice of Louisville's independently-owned businesses. But there are so many more - like listings in the Buy Local Guide, networking events, discounts, showcase events like the Buy Local Fair and Local Business Expo and so much more.
Plus, the whole independent business community reaps the rewards! Companies in communities with campaigns like LIBA's report stronger sales than those without (cited from the 2016 Independent Business Survey. Click here to read the full report.)
Take a look at the video to hear what our members have to say! (Thanks for producing it Hatfield Media!)
Standard Business Membership
This was our only level of membership for many years and it continues to have all the perks it always has, including listings in our directories, materials for your business and invitations to our events. For a full list of member benefits, download our Benefits Sheet.
Business Members must be able to answer YES to to questions 1-4 and NO to question 5:
After your business is approved, you will be allowed to add contacts to your member account.
Partner Business Membership
Partner Members have taken the next step in supporting local businesses by growing their involvement in LIBA.
Partner Members get extra membership benefits, and as the name implies, a custom partnership with LIBA that will help both the member and LIBA further our mutual goals.
Download a listing of the 'usual' benefits of becoming a LIBA Partner Member. But keep in mind that partnerships are easily customized to fit the needs of your company. Email Jennifer or call 502-473-4687 to discuss the possibilities.
All partner memberships include your logo printed by your listings and recognition in our "special thanks" ad in our Buy Local Guides, recognition as a Partner Member throughout our website and on signage at all of our events, the option to include an item in our new member welcome packets, recognition in our enewsletters, etc.
Standard Partner Membership Levels include:

Key Investor Membership

Trustee Membership - only 2 available

Individuals who are not business owners can still support LIBA's efforts with an individual membership.
By joining as an individual supporter, you'll receive a "Buy Local" sticker, and we'll keep you updated through our newsletters about what's happening with the organization and how you can be involved.
By joining as an individual member, you have embraced what makes Louisville unique, supported locally-owned businesses, and ensured that your dollars will be kept circulating in the local economy.
The seemingly small act of joining with us to Keep Louisville Weird will have a far-reaching and long term impact on what our world will look like in the future.
