THERE IS NO COMPARABLE SERVICE ANYWHERE IN CONNECTICUT.

CCM's Research and Information Services are unique and available exclusively to CCM members.  A municipality could not buy equivalent research services for many, many times the price of membership in CCM.

YOU NEED GOOD INFORMATION TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS.

Every day, local officials from CCM-member municipalities turn to CCM Research and Information Services to get the information they need - quickly, accurately, and without charge.

WHEN YOU CALL CCM'S INFORMATION SERVICE YOU GET RESULTS.

You can count on accurate, thorough, and timely answers to your questions. Every day, our research helps municipal officials throughout Connecticut make informed choices.

Here's what a few users of CCM Research and Information Services have said:

CCM's Research and Information Service is a tremendous resource that every city and town should be using. Especially in this economy with layoffs, new hires, updating ordinances  or just looking for best practices employed by other municipalities, CCM has almost everything that is needed to make informed decisions and they are just a phone call or a click of the computer away.

I have found CCM's Research Department very helpful throughout the year. It provides a valuable service by surveying what other Connecticut municipalities have done with respect to a variety of subjects so that we can compare our Town's approach to what others have done in the past.
