History

Organizational History:

The Michigan Business Education Association (MBEA), a professional association of business educators, was organized in 1936 as the Michigan Commercial Education Association (MCEA). John M. Trytten, Professor of Business Education at the University of Michigan, was elected as the first president of the organization. Although the objectives of the MBEA have evolved over time, the broad goal of improving education for and about business remains the same. Maintaining a close relationship with the business community, MBEA seeks, among other things, to further the professional development of business educators, to promote and interpret business education, to support research and development efforts in all areas of business education, and to influence legislative and public policy decisions as they pertain to business education.

Trytten Archives of the MBEA date from 1936 and include the Articles of Incorporation, Constitutions, By-Laws, Policies, Meeting Minutes of the Executive Board, General Meetings, and miscellaneous meetings, Correspondence, Financial Records, Treasurer’s Ledgers and Reports, Miscellaneous Materials, Miscellaneous Reports, folders of materials relating to the Annual Convention, Fall Conference, Workshops, and Membership, and various Photographs, among other materials.
