Client Advisory Council

Our Council Counsels

At least once a year, we meet with our Client Advisory Council, composed of clients, community ambassadors, economic development partners, and leaders from business and industry, manufacturing and education. This "focus group" serves as our eyes and ears, ensuring we stay current with workplace trends and challenges, helping to create a vision for our future.

Thanks to our Client Advisory Council, we've:

  • Created constructive business and community collaborations
  • Secured feedback on our strengths – and areas to improve
  • Developed strategic initiatives for long-term growth

Our Client Advisory Council recognizes those who have gone "above and beyond," making a significant impact on employees' lives, within their organization and/or throughout their community.  The annual Client Advisory Council meeting and awards luncheon provides an opportunity to demonstrate this recognition.

These successes are at the heart of the Alber Enterprise Center mission.
