The BIA is New Hampshire's statewide chamber of commerce and leading business advocate.
Our mission is to promote a healthy business climate and robust economic future for New Hampshire. Through advocacy with state legislators and regulators, we shape business-friendly public policy and provide counterbalance to legislation and regulations that threaten the growth and prosperity of New Hampshire business.
In 1913, a group of manufacturers concerned about legislation and government regulation of business, formed the New Hampshire Manufacturer's Association. In 1970, the organization changed its name to the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire.
