About Us

Bay Area Community Council

Bay Area Community Council is a tax deductible 501(c)(3) organization created in 1990 as the result of a community leadership forum. We focus on big-picture, strategic issues important to our area’s quality of life. Our volunteer board members possess a broad range of experiences and perspectives of the community.  Over the years this organization has been a catalyst for positive community progress and change, created by collaboration between private business, government and non-profit organizations.
