From its humble beginnings as the CT Society for the Encouragement of America Manufacturing to the business community's voice in the State Capitol, the CBIA has grown and changed substantially throughout the years. On the cusp of Joe Brennan's retirement as President & CEO of the CBIA, he reflects with Ari on the history of the organization, their present accomplishments, and what he sees for the future.

This episode is fascinating! Joe and Ari talk about the CBIA's role during the different stages of the pandemic, the creation and accomplishments of the Connecticut Manufacturer's Collaborative, and the incoming President & CEO, Chris DiPentima.
