"Membership in the Putnam Business Association plays an important role in helping Quinebaug Valley Community College stay connected to our local business community. With 60+ business leaders in attendance, the PBA’s monthly meetings are a tremendous opportunity for QVCC to strengthen existing relationships and start building new ones. 


In addition, the PBA shares QVCC announcements directly with its 200+ members, offers member-spotlight appearances on WINY Radio, and puts on fun events where we can interact directly with the community. The benefits of PBA membership are numerous, they are tangible, and they have been tremendously helpful to QVCC."
