Gulf Coast Business Council

The Gulf Coast Business Council is a 501(c)(6) organization, governed by a Board of Directors. Our general membership consists of the lead decision-makers of companies doing business on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The Partnership Circle engages organizations and associations, which are not private business entities but key stakeholders whose missions are aligned with that of the Business Council. Membership in the Partnership Circle is limited to the top, full-time director or operating manager in the organization.

The Regional Steward level engages individuals who are not working as a top executive of a for-profit business entity but who have historically demonstrated leadership on regional issues of public policy and possess the ability to engage in the mission and programs of work of the Business Council.

Business Development

The Gulf Coast Business Council champions common economic and business interests through identifying issues, convening resources, framing public policy and finding solutions for the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
