The mission of the North Redondo Beach Business Association (NRBBA) is to promote activities that enhance business in North Redondo Beach (Zip 90278, including businesses on Artesia, Aviation, 190th).
The NRBBA is a 501c6 all-volunteer non-profit organization founded in 1979.
While many NRBBA members are active in other civic groups and the Chamber of Commerce, unlike the local Chambers, there are no part-time or full-time employees (salaried staff).
The NRBBA donates money to worthwhile causes which enhance business and community health and pride. Ranging in size from $500 to $5000, these donations have included the Library Foundation, school scholarships, and police dogs. Funds for these donations are raised primarily from an annual "Springfest" event which began in 1983.
The NRBBA was quite active in review of the Artesia Beautification Project in 2002.

City Treasurer Ernie O'Dell is a past president of the NRBBA (1982-1983). Here are some historical documents which he supplied. [These documents require Adobe Reader to view.]
"A Little History of the NRBBA" by Ernie O’Dell, City Treasurer and past president NRBBA 1982-83.
"The NRBBA was founded in 1979 by a group of businesspeople who were interested in improvements in North Redondo Beach, most notably Artesia and Aviation Boulevards, which had both fallen into a certain degree of disrepair at that time.
This same group almost simultaneously founded the North Redondo Beach Rotary Club in 1979, probably as a way of instilling pride in the area, and increased participation in the north end."
