About CBC

Community Business Connections (CBC) began as a group of friends dedicated to developing professional relationships while growing their businesses. As the group grew, so did a passion for serving local non-profits, and CBC has incorporated that into its mission. While CBC continues to focus on building business connections, it has whole-heartedly committed to sponsoring non-profit fundraisers, taking field trips to local non-profits to learn more about the organizations, taking on volunteer projects and waiving dues and attendance policies for non-profit members.

CBC is open to all professionals of businesses or non-profits.  Guests are welcome to attend, although due to exclusivity of business categories, membership might be limited.

Meetings are every Wednesday at noon at the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Muncie. Brown bag lunches are encouraged. Membership dues are $60 annually.
