The West Broadway Area Business Committee is a strong network of for-profit and nonprofit businesses and residents supporting one another, seeking creative solutions and promoting a welcoming, wealth-generating West Broadway and surrounding Northside.

The Business Committee is a decades long tradition of the West Broadway Business Association which was merged with the West Broadway Area Coalition in 2006-07. Businesses, residents and partners have continued to evolve the Business Committee over the years. One of the most popular elements of the Business Committee are themed lunches, whether delving into issues of shared interest, or welcoming elected officials for far reaching conversations. The Committee also gathers for formal meetings as useful to build consensus around policy positions and advocacy and informal networking events.
