CABA Calendar

Choose a date highlighted below to see the events for that day.

Guests are welcome to attend up to two (2) of our free Wednesday CABA events, before we ask them to join. We alternate between CABA Coffees (7:30-9:00 AM) in the morning one week, and CABA After 5’s (5:30-7:00 PM) the following week. Are you a morning person? Do you prefer to network after work? CABA has an event to accommodate your schedule.

Our weekly events are hosted at CABA member businesses and restaurants to highlight our CABA members. Don’t have a brick and mortar office? Ask another CABA member or restaurant, if they would like to co-host your CABA Coffee or CABA After 5.

Are you a new CABA member? Do you have a new office? A new business? A new expansion? A new product or service? Schedule a CABA Ribbon Cutting! You invite your clients, colleagues, and neighbors, and CABA brings the publicity, the ribbon, and the scissors.

We encourage all of our members to invite guests to our events. As CABA grows, so do our CABA member businesses.

Check the CABA calendar for a date when you would like to visit CABA or invite a guest, and you will experience first-hand how #CABAconnects.

Our Monthly Events

Lunch & Learn

Grab some lunch and learn something new. With our CABA Lunch and Learn we host a monthly event at our members locations.

Networking on The 9's

 CABA has some of Tampa Bay’s most beautiful golf and country clubs as CABA members. The Golf Committee regularly hosts fun golf outings with CABA members and their guests who enjoy meeting their referral partners during a round of fun scramble play.

Power Lunch

CABA’s Immediate Past President works with the Power Lunch Committee to plan monthly “speed networking” events at CABA member restaurants, where CABA members have an opportunity to sponsor a table and/or engage in round-robin B2B networking

Special Events

Taste of Carrollwood

CABA’s largest event of the year, CABA Presents Taste of Carrollwood, has attracted up to 5000 attendees to its annual event, held at state-of-the-art venues like George M. Steinbrenner Field and Raymond James Stadium.

Golf Classic

The CABA Golf Classic is held at a CABA member golf course for the benefit of CABA and a CABA member non-profit. It is a fun-packed day that kicks off with a box lunch, 18 holes of scramble play, contests, a silent auction, raffle prizes, and a Winners Circle Happy Hour: ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

Holiday Tree Lighting

Each December, CABA’s Community Outreach Committee collaborates with our Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation partners to celebrate the holidays with a lighted, decorated holiday tree in Northdale Park with the Northdale Civic Association and Northdale OWLS.

Trunk or Treat

CABA’s Community Outreach Committee partners with CABA members like the Northdale Civic Association and Gaither High School to provide children and families with a safe and fun place for Trick or Treating. CABA members sponsor parking spaces, where they promote their business to families while handing out treats for children of all ages. Costume contests (including costumed fur babies) have characterized our annual FREE AND FUN event.

Member Holiday Party

CABA provides networking for members and guests throughout the year, but the Holiday After 5 is a bit more festive.

Awards & Installation Dinner

CABA awards outstanding members annually at the Awards and Installation Dinner. Each Board Liaison annually awards a member of their CABA Committee as “Committee Member of the Year,” based on outstanding service to CABA and the Committee. Additionally, awards include Business of the Year, CABA Member of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and the Jay Mauk Memorial Award for the member most helpful to the President.
