Business Builders Association
The main goals of the Business Builders Association (BBA) are to allow
business owners a forum to meet and exchange ideas, as well as refer
business to each other when appropriate. Membership has grown to
approximately twenty members. Due to the relatively small size of the
Norfolk Business Community, members do not have to have a Norfolk-based
business, but if not, the business must serve the Norfolk area
community, and/or the owner must be a resident of Norfolk.
BBA founders Mike Hurley and Steve McDonough have tried to make meetings
enjoyable by scheduling two evening meetings each month. Some of the
rigidity found in other organizations is not part of the BBA. Regular
attendance of meetings is strongly encouraged. There is a guest speaker
for each meeting.
The BBA currently meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00
p.m. at Guido's Restaurant on Rt. 1A in Norfolk. Members and guests pay
for their own drinks and chip in $5.00 for food.
New members are welcome, but membership is limited to one person per
field of business. If you are interested in joining the BBA, please
contact Bert Carrison (current president) at (508) 541-6968 or Charlie
Russo (VP) at (508) 429-5588.
