About The Macedonian Business Club
In 1950 our Dedos, Fathers, Uncles, Brothers and Friends got together with the hope of hanging on to a part of their Macedonian Heritage with those living in the Greater Akron, Ohio area. Today they would surely be amazed to know that we continue to honor them with our monthly meeting and a commitment to keep our organization going and growing.
Our Social Club continues to grow as an IRS 501(c)(4) tax-exempt social welfare organization for charitable and social purposes under By laws voted on and accepted in Novembers 1950 and subsequent amendments in 1967,1986 and 1988. Through the years we have stayed true to our mission of education, community support and the celebration of our heritage.
As our Club continues to grow it became obvious that we were missing a great opportunity by not including women as full voting members. To that end our new bylaws were passed at the February 14, 2023, annual Friends, and Family dinner. To summarize the Executive Summary:
- It is the desire of the Club to be inclusive of women as full voting members as we move forward.
- It is the desire of the Club to be inclusive when providing aid.
- It is the desire of the Club to function as the National Society to establish Chapters in distant markets with the United Macedonia Diaspora (UMD) or others.
We would like to have you as our guest at one of our monthly meeting where we can enjoy dinner together and talk abouth the many things we have in common and to share a bit of history. If you are interested please contact one of our members and let them know.
