Through our Professional Pillar, we offer our members the opportunity to grow their own and their peer’s professionalism. We provide this opportunity through events and leadership.

Each semester, our members are presented with professional development events facilitated by Committees like Corporate Partnership, Technology, College Relations, and the Professional Development Committee itself. Each of these Committees offer events with unique opportunities for our members. Examples include alumni/corporate speakers, resume critiques, technology workshops, GCoB faculty engagement, lunch and learns, and interview prep.

Every member in Business Council has the opportunity to be a leader and develop experience as such. While formal leadership positions are offered like Coordinator and Committee Chair roles, we encourage all of our members to take the initiative to run events, lead by example, and empower those around them.

Service is an integral part of our organization. We serve our community and beyond by our drive to dedicate our talents, and abilities to those in need.

Our organization’s Service Pillar is primarily upheld by our Philanthropy and Charity Fundraising Committees. Staple semester events like IMPACT Day, Gies College of Business Best Dance Crew, and A Mother’s Touch are also facilitated by various Coordinator positions. These events run by our Committees and Coordinators aim to deliver service opportunity to our members.

Examples of organizations that we volunteer for each semester are Hope Center Food Pantry, Clark Lindsey Retirement Village, Salt and Light Ministries, Adopt a Highway, the Boys and Girls Club, Habitat for Humanity and many more.

In addition to volunteering, our members organize events aimed to raise money for a charity. Each semester we selected a new charity to support. This charity is voted upon by our members and is always closely connected to our Business Council family.

Our Business Council family is what makes our organization so special. Through the highs and lows, we are always there to support and empower each other.

Our Social Pillar is sustained by our Social, Internal Engagement, External Affairs, New Member, Publications, and Recruitment Committees. Each of these Committees provide opportunity for our member to grow together in friendship as a family. Through these friendships, we create lifelong friendships. Many of our members make Business Council their home away from home.

Some examples of event that we facilitate have included weekend retreats, intramural sports, game/movie nights, visiting our favorite restaurants, trivia nights, barn dances, semi-formals, tailgates, and a whole lot more.

Business Council members are the kind of people that will do anything for each other. These bonds are what empower us to grow and develop ourselves to be the people we are.
