In 2013, Orange County Business Council celebrates its 120th anniversary as The Leading Voice of Business. OCBC formed in 1995 through the merger of the 100-year old Orange County Chamber of Commerce, the Industrial League of Orange County, the Orange County Economic Development Consortium, and the public-private think tank, Partnership 2010.
OCBC accomplishes its mission by leading a high-profile, pro-active advocacy program at the county, state, and federal level for business interests throughout California and the nation, focusing on four core initiatives: improving infrastructure, enhancing workforce development, increasing the supply and range of workforce housing and promoting robust economic development.
OCBC’s history of accomplishments includes assisting in reorganizing local governance structures, advancing business-friendly legislation, leading local and regional economic development opportunities, helping charitable partners achieve their financial objectives, promoting high-tech and innovation initiatives, and numerous other programs.
Through its core initiatives and programs, OCBC works to make Orange County a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
