About the Council: The Council of Business Advisors is a networking association for B2B professionals that was founded in 2007 by a core group of Bay Area professionals who wanted a better forum to expand their networks of professional resources and contacts.
Drawing on their experiences with other professional associations and business groups, the founders developed a format and structure for the Council to maximize the value of membership for each member. Since that time, the Council has continued to grow, drawing on suggestions from its members, and to expand with additional groups on the basis of demand.
The Council has six groups in the Bay Area, from San Francisco to San Jose. Experienced professionals who work as trusted advisors to business owners and executives are invited to request an invitation to attend a breakfast meeting as a guest. More information is available at the Council's website, www.councilofbusinessadvisors.org.
