New England Business Association
The New England Business Association, formerly known as the Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE), was founded in 1938 as a private not-for-profit association of approximately 600 member companies located throughout the six-state region. SBANE was initially established to provide a legislative voice for small business at the state and federal levels and to make practical information available to help business owners grow their companies. For decades, SBANE ran diverse, educational and networking programs each year with active chapters in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The membership has been characterized by a high degree of participation, reflected in a large and dynamic committee structure, addressing a range of topics from international trade to human resources.
