The Montana Avenue Merchants Association

The Montana Avenue Merchants Association or MAMA (established 1979) represents the businesses on Montana Ave. in Santa Monica for the purpose of promoting and marketing the Montana Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) as a vital, safe, unique place for shopping, dining, and enjoyment.

With roughly 150 members (business license holders) this non-profit corporation is managed by a Board of Directors elected by the general membership.

We are committed to building and nurturing partnerships with each other, our city government and other businesses and neighborhood organizations to improve and enhance the quality of work and life in our community.

The Board meets once a month, currently on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at Malin + Goetz, located at 1123 Montana Ave. There is at least one annual meeting for elections each year. Board members serve two-year terms. All Board members are volunteers, and the Association is always interested in volunteers to help out.
