North Alton – Godfrey Business Council
The North Alton- Godfrey Business Council is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization, founded over 70 years ago by three prominent North Alton business owners. Its energies are devoted to promoting activities and projects which directly benefit its membership and the communities which it serves. Its diverse membership includes locally/nationally owned retail and service businesses, financial institutions and investment counselors, health care and educational educational entities, retirement communities, automotive dealerships and collision shops, insurance, accounting and legal counsel, as well as individual members.
Monthly Meetings – Membership Dues
The Business Council meets the second Tuesday of each month at a different location, with meeting notices sent by email. There are eight (8) breakfast, three (3) luncheon and one evening meeting. The meetings always include a presentation of current interest. Meeting summaries are posted on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/northaltongodfreybc).
The Council’s fiscal year runs from April 1 through March 31, with a per business entity dues structure of $55 annually.
Council Member Activities
