THE OREM BUSINESS ALLIANCE

Sign-up for oba emails

The Orem Business Alliance was created earlier this year to help Orem small businesses and Orem businesses (of any size) that are focused on Orem-centric issues. The Orem Business Alliance is an organization of Orem businesses, the City government, and the Business Resource Center, which aims to support and uplift Orem businesses through their three-fold mission by:

  1. Providing an opportunity for business networking
  2. Advocating for the Orem business community
  3. Connecting Orem businesses to valuable resources

We plan to meet the first two objectives through luncheons, meetings, webinars, and issues-focused committees. We plan to meet the third objective through emails, websites, and through working with the Business Resource Center.

You can stay up-to-date with everything involving Orem businesses by signing up for the emails with the button to the left, or visit our website below.
