Geauga Business Advisory Council

Geauga County Business Advisory Council

The Geauga County Business Advisory Council (BAC) fosters collaboration among schools, businesses and the communities in Geauga County.  This work ensures that educational initiatives align with the needs of businesses. 
 
This collaboration makes educational partners:
  • more aware of the local labor market; 
  • promotes work-based experiences within businesses; 
  • and, helps students prepare for successful learning and employment opportunities. 

Businesses in Geauga county wishing to become a member of the BAC are encouraged to reach out to the ESC of the Western Reserve and partners like the Geauga Growth Partnership.

Together we can make a direct impact on the career development of all youth.

It is the policy of the ESC of the Western Reserve that all ESC of the Western Reserve -sponsored public meetings and events are accessible to people with disabilities.  If you need assistance in participating in this meeting due to a disability as defined under the ADA, pease call the ESC of the Western Reserve's Superintendent at 440-350-2563.
