History Biographical The Ladner Business Association (L.B.A.) was founded in 1955 and is still active. Formerly known as the Ladner Businessmen’s Association, the L.B.A. is made up of a group of business owners and community members who meet regularly to discuss issues and organize events in Ladner. According to their mission statement the Ladner Business Association “fosters a positive business climate, engages in the community, maintains relationships with the government and promotes Ladner. L.B.A. members support one another through networking, mentoring and social interaction. “ The L.B.A. plans and hosts numerous community events throughout the year. The Easter Parade and Egg Hunt, Quilt Walk and Classic Car Show, May Days, Open Air Market, Summer Barbeque, Family Fright Fest, Breakfast with Santa, Annual Christmas Tree Lighting, Carol Ships, and Christmas Banquet are all L.B.A.-sponsored events. In the past they actively promoted and sponsored the Snow Goose Festival before its cancellation. These activities bring many people and potential customers into Ladner shops and restaurants. Ladner Business Association also gives a scholarship every year to a deserving student. Ladner Business Association also is a strong voice representing the business owners in Ladner. They act on behalf of their members, writing letters of support when a member is applying for permits or when action needs to be taken, such as vandalism to stores or unfair and unlawful sale of goods. They keep close contact with the Corporation of Delta, as well as the local MLAs and MPs. They frequently send letters pertaining to matters that affect local businesses and the broader Ladner community. They have spearheaded numerous projects, such as the Business Improvement Area Society (B.I.A.), the Ladner Fraser River Boat Launch restoration and improving parking in the downtown core with the Ladner Parking Corporation. The Ladner Business Association is lead by a president and executive council who are elected by other members annually. Past presidents include: (Not in chronological order) Walt Heyward Brad Cooper Michael Owen George North Bill McKnight Jack Pashleigh Stan Hardcastle Bruce Cochrane Alayne Lyndon Ed Weightman William Jones Kelly Guichon Marv Fraser
