The Plain City Business Association (PCBA) is a resource for, and an organization that encourages and supports, local businesses. They enjoy a strong working relationship with village officials, and the Uptown Plain City Organization (UPCO). The PCBA is not only a resource, but it also provides an outlet for community involvement through various events and activities such as:
The PCBA is predominately a monthly networking opportunity for all attendees to stay connected, talk about their business and glean information from other attendees. Monthly, speakers are invited to share small business practices that may positively affect others. These meetings are held every fourth Wednesday of each month at 8:00 AM at Der Dutchman, 445 South Jefferson Avenue, Plain City. Questions should be directed to the Union County Chamber at 800-642-0087.
The PCBA is a strong supporter of the many community activities. Among them: Plain City Heritage Days highlighting Plain City’s Amish and Mennonite background; the 4th of July celebration at Pastime Park; Miami Valley Steam Threshers Reunion showcasing vintage farm machinery; Plain City Classic Car Cruise-In; Union County Covered Bridge Festival celebrating the many covered bridges in the area; The Plain City Four Mile Run/Walk which winds through the Village of Plain City; and Christmas Under the Clock, an old fashioned Christmas celebration.

The PCBA takes on projects such as fundraisers utilizing Plain City inspired Christmas tree ornaments, afghans with village scenes depicted, and a Bicentennial t-shirt. These funds are used for projects such as the donation of Village entrance signs.
