These community leaders are representative of our industry sectors and geographics, and represent both public and private interests to improve communication and understanding on local economic issues across this common divide.

The Advisory Council advises on issues at hand to ensure that local economic development activities undertaken by Vail Valley Economic Development are relevant to the needs of the business community, and remain aligned to our core mission of promoting the long-term economic health of Eagle County.
