Mission Statement

To better the business environment in Kenya through promoting mutual understanding between policymakers and stakeholders, and creating awareness on issues affecting the stability and progress of local businesses.

Our Vision

To be a leading regional provider of accomplished services in partnership with policymakers and fellow stakeholders, with a view of entrenching equitable trade as well as ensure practicability and sustainability of policy directives, to the benefit of government and Kenyans in general.

Our History

From the initial United Retail Traders Welfare Society (URTWS), the Association has undergone various transformations to what it is today. URTWS came about spontaneously in the year 2001 to lobby against the introduction of the Stock Card Issue, which would have imposed on traders the onerous task of keeping a trail of stock-in-trade on a daily basis. At that time, there were no organizations the average business person could readily approach to represent issues; the business organizations back then had different priorities and could therefore not afford the ordinary business person the required attention.

Soon after registration, URTWS received membership from the whole spectrum of businesses, namely, retail, wholesale, manufacturing and providers of professional services. This necessitated the then Committee to change the name to United Business Welfare Society (UBWS). Again, a problem arose in that a welfare society cannot sue or be sued. This snag continued to hound the organization even when legal recourse was deemed expedient after respondent parties shut their doors to dialogue.

The name of the organization was then changed to United Business Association (UBA); this outfit now provided the organization with the legal capability of taking matters to court for adjudication on behalf of members. This avenue of redress has in the past been exploited when need arose.

Our Management

The association is run by a committee that is presided over by a chairman. The association operates a well-staffed secretariat through which the Committee liaises with members or vice versa. The secretariat articulates members’ concerns and keeps them abreast of developments affecting business and their well-being through Circulars and notices.
