About the CBA: The Carrboro Business Alliance was founded in 2014 by a small group of local business and nonprofit leaders who saw the opportunity to improve collaboration and advance shared goals. Today, the Carrboro Business Alliance includes nearly 100 Carrboro-serving enterprises - ranging from one person studios to national corporations. The Alliance is governed by a Leadership Council with guidance from two Committees (Policy and Marketing), and operates with administrative support from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.
