CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP – The Manufacturer & Business Association (MBA) today announced that it is relocating its Pittsburgh office, located at the former SMC Business Councils, 600 Cranberry Woods Drive, to a new state-of-the-art office building and conference center in Cranberry Township, effective January 1, 2023. The new office space is based in the Regional Learning Alliance (RLA) Learning and Conference Center, 850 Cranberry Woods Drive, Suite 2224. The 34,000-square-foot RLA facility, which features 28 meeting rooms, is centrally located at the hub of Interstates 79 and 76.
“The Association has found the perfect place and partnership with the Regional Learning Alliance,” said MBA Interim President and Chief Executive Officer Lori Joint. “The new location provides the same area of convenience and ease for our members to access, but also a facility that is more conducive to who we are as an organization and the services we offer.”
The RLA’s mission is to provide comprehensive facilities and support services to enhance learning and collaborative experiences that drive economic, educational, community and workforce vitality. The Alliance is dedicated to creating excellent lifelong learning experiences, a vision which closely aligns with the MBA’s own.
The MBA initially plans to offer professional development training and computer training at the new location and expects those offerings to increase and grow. The Association will continue to offer programs and offerings from its Human Resources, Legal and Government Affairs Divisions.
“We have always been impressed with the RLA facility and what they do there,” said Joint. “There is an energy and excitement that seems to exist that creates a very positive environment. Many of our members are already familiar with RLA from attending meetings there or for continuing education purposes. I can’t think of a more perfect place for the MBA to be.”
