Groton Business Committee

Welcome to the Groton Business Committee

The Groton Business Committee is an affiliate of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce. In collaboration with the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, the GBA is the most active affiliated group of any chamber of commerce in Eastern CT.

We are a cross section of local business and civic leaders from throughout Greater Groton working together to help enhance the economic vitality of the Groton Business Community. Groton is geographically defined by the Thames and Mystic Rivers and our area of influence ranges from ‘river to river’.

People you know, people who are in business just like you - people who are networking, making contacts, and improving their own business prospects as they work to improve yours, make up the Groton Business Committee.

The GBC hosts monthly meetings at businesses in Groton and feature guest speakers on topics of general interest and relevant to business in our community. Meet others who have made the commitment to doing business in Groton and have much to share about strategies for success.

GBC liaison memberships on municipal commissions such as Town of Groton EDC and City of Groton ECDC, along with regional groups including the Airport Advisory Committee and Thames River Heritage Park provide a pathway to keep our members informed on current news and developments in venues that effect businesses throughout Greater Groton, and to advocate for the business community.

There are no membership or meeting fees for the GBA. If you are doing business, work at a business, or want to do business in Groton, you are already a member. All are welcome, and we want your participation. Please join us for our next meeting!
