"Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future."
We intend to meet our mission by promoting a positive climate for business growth in St. Joseph County and our surrounding area. In doing this, we want to encourage the development of an entrepreneurial spirit in our youth and where appropriate in current employees. We desire to achieve this in a way that honors and supports the great people of this region and preserves our marvelous and beautiful environment. The purposes for which the Council is organized are exclusively charitable and educational within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or the corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue Law.
