About CAB

CAB takes an active role in ensuring that town growth is manageable and in the best interest of the townspeople and the business community. Working with the town selectmen and community volunteers, CAB members were instrumental in drafting the town's comprehensive plan, its sign ordinance, and other major projects related to the growth and revitalization of Cornish.

Back in 1990, a group of Cornish business owners decided to meet and work together to create an organization to benefit the town's business and private sectors. A non-profit organization was established and named the Cornish Association of Businesses (CAB). The purpose of this corporation is to promote the general business and community welfare in the town of Cornish and act as a business league within the meaning of 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, its amendments and future provisions. Since its birth, CAB has donated thousand of dollars to aid local, civic organizations and to benefit deserving, town students with post-secondary school scholarships. It also gave birth to one of the town's largest annual events, the Cornish Apple Festival, which takes place on the last Saturday in September of each year.

CAB meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Cornish United Church of Christ for discussion and planning of various goals, new ideas, and for community involvement. We extend an open invitation to all who wish to attend and help promote our local businesses*. For further information please call Scott Rowley, president of the Cornish Association of Business, at 625-4993 .

We extend an open invitation to all who wish to participate in the email meetings or to share their opinions via email or in person to anyone of the CAB Officers or Board of Directors. For further information please call Scott Rowley, president of the Cornish Association of Business, at 625-4993 I look forward to hearing your ideas and plans.
