The History of the WBPA
The Walkersville Business and Professional Association was founded in February of 2010. Walkersville’s town commissioners, led by Don Schildt, passed a resolution in the fall of 2009 to attempt to start a business and professional association.
The organization initially started with 20 members. The original scope of the organization was to establish a networking group that resembled Frederick’s Chamber of Commerce which has evolved over time.
The Walkersville Business and Professional Association (WBPA) is an organization based in Walkersville, Maryland and our main function is to promote local businesses and professionals.
We strive to help all our members drive customers to their businesses through networking, advertising, social media and word of mouth. Our members hold the highest regards in business standards and are very welcoming to new members who want to join.
