The Harford County Business Advisory Council is a group of business peers all located in Harford County that serve as a sounding board for the GBC. This council meets quarterly.

The group discusses issues being dealt with in their region, as well as work to develop projects the GBC can assist them in. The council also looks to develop topics they would like to see at future Harford County meetings and events. If possible, at least one industry expert is in attendance at these discussions to give advice and answer questions on their area of expertise.

Current Projects or Areas of Interest

Completed the Harford County Destination Market Study in coordination with the Harford County Office of Economic Development. The study supported the need for building and expanding restaurants in the county, as well as looking at a building a conference center and/or sport facility. In addition, the study provided suggestions for long-term sustainable funding sources for Harford County.
Working with defense contractors, APG and other Harford County associations on promoting the need for better public transportation and more funding in the Transportation Trust Fund. Harford County currently experiences a number of transportation-related barriers due to the enormous growth around APG.

Founded in 2010, this council is comprised of all different industries including accounting, banking, real estate, legal affairs, hospitality and education. We are always looking for additional members who are interested in being a part of the council. To attend a meeting or join, please contact Sara Garbarino at 410-727-2820, ext. 29.
