The National Business Advisory Council (NBAC) was established to provide a liaison between business and industry and BPA’s Board of Trustees. The purpose of the Council is to offer insight and guidance on the future of business and industry in order to assist with the development of programs that offer real-world experience for BPA students. The membership of NBAC consists of representatives from various segments of the business community. It is important to the organization’s Board of Trustees that the strength, knowledge and expertise of this group are utilized to help with the advancement of its members, and that the make-up of the Council offers a variety of experiences and opinions from different sectors of business and industry to better serve the organization and its members.
All members of the Council are approved by the Board of Trustees based upon recommendations from the Council Chair and other members serving on the National Business Advisory Council.
