North Carolina Business Council

Comprised of businesses, business organizations and leaders, NCBC strives to create a resilient economic future for North Carolina. NCBC believes that this can be achieved through socially responsible enterprises, sustainable environmental practices, and strong local Main Street economies. Together, we are an organization advocating for North Carolina businesses to build and raise our voice on the state and national levels. Please go to the NCBC website to join or for more information!

How we started:

Business leaders interested in supporting strong local economies met in 2011 to discuss options for collaboration. These leaders, involved in sustainable energy, shop local movements, economic development, sustainable agriculture and manufacturing, continued to meet for the next two years on an intermittent basis. In spring of 2013, NCBC established organizational status and began to reach out to potential partners and advocate for issues. In February 2015 we were officially granted nonprofit status.
