Working hard to promote a strong economic climate, we provide current updates on issues discussed at the state, county and local levels.

The South Orange County Economic Coalition is the premier advocacy and business development organization in the region. Member businesses include key stakeholder companies (corporations and sole proprietorships) committed to building a strong local business climate both regionally and within our constituent local communities.

Until recently, there has not been an organization whose primary mission is to advocate and represent the local and South County Regional businesses. Our focus IS REGIONAL…We are committed to consistently build and support a strong local economy, promote job creation and retention by facilitating regional awareness and cooperation.

The South Orange County Economic Coalition has served the region’s businesses since 1969.
