Cambridge Chronicle article: ECBA Hosts first networking event


The East Cambridge Business Association launched this past month with their first networking event on Feb 25th. The event was a big success and drew a crowd of 40 to the East Side Bar & Grill (yelp page) at 561 Cambridge St (right across the street from my office).

The ECBA intends to organize and unite the many varied businesses of East Cambridge. As their website puts it, their mission is:

“To promote and maintain sustainable commerce in East Cambridge; to be a single voice for its members; to promote activities that bond East Cambridge businesses with their neighborhood; and to preserve the historical integrity and importance of East Cambridge.
-ECBA Mission statement

There has already been a lot of interest in the ECBA thanks to a lot of hard work from the early members and organizers. The organization is a great idea and could help East Cambridge come together as a united front to preserve our historic community and face the upcoming economic challenges for local businesses.

The members already include a wide variety of services from familiar East Cambridge spots:
