Who are we?

CBIA offers its members the information and training they need to comply with myriad state and federal safety, labor, environmental, and other regulations. We also provide members with a wide range of products and services they need to stay competitive, including employee health and benefit plans, member discounts, and group purchasing programs.

Working for a Better Connecticut

The Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA) is the largest, most representative business organization in the state. Our members include businesses of all sizes from nearly all industries in Connecticut. We are the leading voice at the State Capitol and before regulatory agencies for policies that promote economic growth, a fiscally responsible state government, and a dynamic business climate.

CBIA believes that a healthy economy depends on a strong business climate, on whether employers, employees, and their families feel confident that Connecticut is a place where they can succeed and grow. Only a healthy economy can provide the wealth of benefits that our families and communities need, from good jobs and wages to the opportunity for a better quality of life. And only a healthy economy can generate the tax revenue that enables state and local government to provide good schools for our children and critical social services for our neediest citizens.

Our Mission

  • Serve as an advocate for the general business and industry community in Connecticut
  • Promote a state business climate that is globally competitive
  • Encourage communication and cooperation among businesses, government, the private sector and the general public on important economic and social issues
  • Provide a wide range of products and services that benefit member companies
