OCCF Awards Funding to OC Business Advisory Council

Posted on: June 12, 2017

The Ottawa County BAC has been awarded a $24,300 grant from the Ottawa County Community Foundation to continue to move the Ottawa County BAC initiative forward, including support of the Career Development Roadmap.

The mission of the Ottawa County Business Advisory Council is to engage the business and education communities to understand and support the educational and employment needs within Ottawa County. In addition, the BAC has a goal to engage our youth in better understanding the career opportunities available in their community.  It is the goal of the BAC to support implementation of every initiative on the Career Development Roadmap.  We believe that 100% of Ottawa County students should graduate from high school with a plan for their future.

Members of the BAC consist of representatives from education (superintendents and principals), business leaders for Ottawa County’s leading industry sectors and local community partners like the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation (OCIC) and United Way in Ottawa County (United Way).
