Committees and Councils

In addition to the priority issue committees, we have permanent bodies that provide general support to The Business Council's advocacy efforts. They include: 
Heather Briccetti

Heather C. Briccetti, Esq.

President & CEO

The Business Council's primary function is to advocate for employers in the state's political and policy arenas. No other state organization has as many resources at work to promote a more competitive business climate, economic growth and jobs. Our membership is made up of thousands of large and small companies who employ 1.2 million workers. Meet the team that works on their behalf.
