EBMA shieldElectric Boat Management Association

Welcome to the EBMA Homepage

The Electric Boat Management Association (EBMA) is a professional organization dedicated to the management and leadership development of its members. Founded by 46 Electric Boat employees in October 1967, the EBMA has a prominent legacy of growth and service. The EBMA’s goals and objectives are endorsed by Electric Boat management.

The EBMA provides its members with an opportunity to network outside of work, across organizations and across generations. The EBMA is its own entity with its own membership, board and officers, and it’s not restricted to only people in management.
