Created by the Department of Business Administration at St. Joseph's College-Brooklyn, the Community Advisory Council plays a pivotal role in fostering a collaborative and congenial business environment in its home borough of Brooklyn. Through its partnerships with the SBDC of Brooklyn, NL Financial Alliance, Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership, the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President and Fort Greene S.N.A.P., the Community Advisory Council seeks to strengthen existing alliances in the community, monitor local economic trends and explore the latest and best practices in the workplace and share this information amongst its members.

The mission of the Brooklyn Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is to foster trade, commerce, prosperity and community among business owners in Brooklyn. Through the reform of abuses involving business, professional or financial interest and by securing and lobbying for freedom from unjust or unlawful exactions, the chamber seeks to not only advance the civic and commercial interests of Hispanic business owners in the borough but also for the Brooklyn business community as a whole.
