It is rare that diverse businesses come together to advocate for the larger issues that impact the total community including the business climate and economic health of Douglas County. Creating a cohesive and proactive voice that achieves real results for all businesses is a key component of Council's mission.

​BCDC members work on issues and projects that are the most relevant and timely to business and the community when setting event and policy agendas. Our contact with political representatives across the state enables us to propose and initiate legislation, and our events and programs enable the public and our members to personally interact with business, government and non-profit leaders.

The members of the Council contribute millions of dollars in tax revenue annually to the locally economy and account for thousands of jobs in Douglas County. Business climates can change frequently due to proposed regulations, legislation, public sentiment and other variables.  The Council is strong in public relations and a source of information for the entire business community.​
