All of MSIB's officers have a business and/or own property located in the Elizabethtown.  As well all the officers live in Elizabethtown (See the "About MSIB" for more information).  We are focused on bringing our downtown business district, the center square, and the main street back to life, back to a thriving self-sustaining economical and activity driven community. 100% of any funds raised and/or received by MSIB is put directly back into activities, improvements, safety, support, and marketing for Elizabethtown. Our mission is to engage the community to buy, shop, and dine with locally owned businesses and in turn strengthen the economic stability of our town. Basically, we are building a strong heart and foundation while working our way out.  We have a plan to rebrand Etown as well as lead the charge toward in regards to stable, balance, and sustainable Economic Development for all of Etown.

We have six major areas of focus:

  3. Create marketing opportunities to all businesses throughout Etown and the surrounding areas
  4. Continued beautification of our streets, storefronts, sidewalks, historic buildings and more
  5. Creating a strong brand identity to Etown.
  6. Establish open lines of communication and continuity with all major groups and organizations in Etown which allows us to work together and share resources, ideas, and more.

WE NEED HELP!!! We do have internship opportunities as well we are looking for the go-getters of the town. Those that want to make a difference and can help. Volunteer to use your skill, talent, craft, and/or expertise to assist our mission.
