Business Affiliate Membership Information
The Connecticut Association of Boards of Education's (CABE) Business Affiliate Membership program was created in 1987 to encourage partnerships between business and education. CABE invites private sector companies, institutions and firms with an interest in public education to become partners with CABE and show their support for local and regional boards of education.
The information you receive as an Business Affiliate keeps you informed on the issues of concern to Connecticut public schools. You will obtain insight into the latest developments in local public education and gain opportunities to network with school district leaders. Depending on the level of participation, Business Affiliates receive a variety of valuable information, services and special opportunities.
