The CBA is there to support businesses of all sizes in Cork in their aspiration for growth. This can be through peer-to-peer networking, business advisory services, or by representing the interests of CBA Members at a strategic level with decision making authorities at a local and National level.
Joining the CBA is a great way to keep up to date with changes in the competitive and regulatory environment, as well as being an opportunity to learn from peers whose experiences may be of benefit to you and your organization
Being part of the CBA provides you with great opportunities to promote your business or organization. Apart from the Networking Events which the CBA run, we also produce a quarterly newsletter in both print and digital form which features a different Member each edition in our Member Spotlight section. To apply to be featured in this section, please send us a message by clicking here
One of the key benefits of CBA Membership is providing all member businesses and organisations with a representative body which can liase with key decision makers in Cork, and who can lobby effectively on behalf of members, providing a much stronger voice than an individual organization could generally hope to achieve.
CBA Networking events take place on a regular basis, in a convivial and accessible environment. These great events range from Breakfast Briefings, to the annual CBA Dinner, to the various Awards Ceremonies such as ‘Cork Business of the Year Awards’, ‘Cork Better Building Awards’, and provide a great opportunity to expand your personal and professional network in the City and beyond.
