A Message from CONECT President Bette Little, click here

CONECT is the Coalition of New England Companies for Trade, a 600+ member-based non-profit business association for companies involved in international trade and transportation.  CONECT offers educational events for members such as transportation facility tours, regulatory seminars and webinars with government organizations such as Customs and Border Protection, CPSC, FDA, EPA and other organizations involved with international trade. Networking events throughout the year allow CONECT members to meet with their peers and share knowledge of the industry, as well to broaden their industry contacts.  CONECT members are invited to make an annual visit to Capitol Hill to meet with New England's Congressional delegation to put forth their views of promoting free and fair trade.
