The FCBA is Forest County’s county-wide “chamber of commerce”. The organization was created to bring our businesses together to work collectively toward their common goals of stronger, healthier businesses and a stronger local economy.
We develop programs that promote our members, encourages local support of local businesses, builds stronger and healthier businesses, encourages cooperation among our businesses, and creates a healthier relationship between Forest County businesses and local and county government. The Alliance also represents our business community in local, county, state, and federal legislative affairs to address issues surrounding expansion and growth of our business community.
The FCBA is the catalyst for change in our business community. Change in local attitude toward and support for our businesses; change in the relationships among our businesses; change in the relationship between our businesses and our local government. For Forest County to thrive and gain strength in today’s competitive world, there must be an integration of business throughout the region. Forest County residents desire not only for current businesses to thrive, but also for new businesses to develop. For our businesses to reach their greatest potential – and therefore to benefit the citizens – it is necessary to have organizations such as the Forest County Business Alliance in place. Our goal is for businesses find membership in the Alliance useful in growing and developing their businesses.
