About Us


A vibrant and sustainable Murrumbateman and region community

Who are we?

The Murrumbateman Progress Association (MPA) is a voluntary, not-for-profit, community-based association.
It assists community members to conduct their various activities within the community by providing legal and statutory cover, representation and support. MPA has granted more than $1million back into the local community over recent years.
MPA is the umbrella organisation to a number of local initiatives and events such as the Australian Cool Climate Wine Show, the Murrumbateman Field Days, the Murrumbateman Menshed, the local markets and the annual Christmas Carols.
Originally formed on 2 March 1936, MPA was called the Murrumbateman Agriculture Bureau and Progress Association. It was renamed the Murrumbateman Progress Association in 2014 and continues to promote rural activity, efficiency and improved standards of living for the Murrumbateman community in general.
The organisation has witnessed many changes and supports the ongoing growth of our town and the community. We invite residents to come to a meeting, make new friends and get involved in the local community.
