Welcome to NorfolkNet!

  • 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.
