about the putnam business association

The Putnam Business Association, comprised just under 200-business members from the town of Putnam, CT and surrounding communities, is proud to be the exclusive sponsor of “Discover Putnam”.  Discover Putnam was created by and on behalf of PBA members to serve as an advertising and marketing campaign through which the community would gain increased exposure as a premiere tourist destination in Connecticut and New England.


The purpose of the Putnam Business Association is to promote and publicize the business of Putnam, Connecticut. Said purpose is to be achieved by a unified advertising, public relations, and promotional campaign to encourage the growth and success of all members of the Association.  The Putnam Business Association meets on the second Wednesday of every month (subject to change) at The Putnam Municipal Complex.
