Member Benefits

CABI membership means so much more than connecting with area professionals.

Membership provides an opportunity to support the local economy, give back to our community and be a good steward of all the resources – fiscal, social and otherwise – that our town has to offer.

CABI offers roundtable discussions, Lunch and Learn events, afterhours networking opportunities, holiday socials, advocacy at both the local and state level, and support of charitable endeavors. Many of these events are open to the entire community and surrounding area and are a great opportunity to introduce potential new members to our organization and membership.

Members are invited to host Lunch and Learns to share information and build awareness of business ventures within our community.

Business roundtables offer invaluable information regarding doing business in town or other challenges professionals may face.

Members can volunteer, sponsor, and participate in our two major annual fundraisers – our golf tournament, the Tom Clark Golf Event, and road race, the Canton Road Race – benefitting our Charitable Foundation.

Canton Association of Business & Industry is a non-profit organization and annual dues are tax deductible.
