The Council’s mission is to address legislative issues that may impact the businesses of Nassau County and to prioritize and pursue those issues at the appropriate level of government using various forms of media and lobbying.
Small and mid-size businesses are the life blood of Long Island’s dense population. Nassau County is home to over 90,000 businesses, grossing billions of dollars and the vast majority of them employ 50 people or less. The Council stays abreast of local, regional and state issues that impact the business community. We are a volunteer organization dedicated to addressing workable solutions. When commerce remains strong and vibrant all people of Nassau County benefit.

Local businesses need local staff; it is that simple. By shopping locally, you are helping the shops and companies in your community to grow, which in turn leads to increased revenue, higher recruitment and more career opportunities opening up for everyone. Look at it this way: $10 million spent at local businesses generates 57 new jobs. The same amount spent at an online retailer like Amazon creates just 13 jobs.
