The Business Council of Fairfield County (formerly known as SACIA) was formed in 1970 by business leaders engaged in the effort to build more livable, workable communities. The Business Council is governed by a board of directors comprised of senior business executives and served by a professional staff.

For over four decades, The Business Council has mobilized Fairfield County's business, political and community leadership around issues critical to the region's viability as a business destination. As we navigate in this new millennium, The Business Council's leadership and expertise continue to be put to work in the areas of transportation planning, legislative advocacy, higher education, economic data collection and analysis, professional development, business leadership and non-profit capacity building
