To develop steward leaders to create an abundant community.
About Fresno Business Council
Fresno Business Council has been a catalyst for transformational change, a convener of formerly disconnected organizations, and a steward leader willing to take responsibility for helping to solve critical and systemic problems.
The organization is still largely virtual, with members picking up many of the operational functions. However, with the launch of the Fresno Stewardship Initiative, it is accelerating community transformation and measuring outcomes. The future will be written based upon the hard work of today.
Fresno Business Council’s Governing Board serves as its policy-making body and provides broad oversight for the organization. The members of the board are chosen for three-year terms. The board meets in Fresno, CA on a monthly basis to discuss, determine and oversee local, regional and national developments as well as updates on community transformation initiatives.

Fresno Stewardship Initiative
Currently, the Fresno Stewardship Initiative is the Fresno Business Council’s primary work. It was launched in January 2012 after years of research and development and experience in leading collaborative initiatives.
The Fresno Stewardship Initiative is designed to solve the tough, complex challenges we face as a community. Guided by key institutional leaders, Mayor Ashley Swearingen, Fresno State President John Welty and Economic Opportunities Commission CEO Brian Angus, the Fresno Stewardship Initiative is staffed and governed by the Fresno Business Council. It is both developing comprehensive strategies to alter the root causes of community dysfunction and the securing capital and executive staff to implement them.
