About BusinessForce

WHAT IS BUSINESSFORCE? BusinessForce is Florida's largest regional political action committee. It operates in total compliance with all election laws and is governed by the Board of Directors composed of regional business and community leaders. It represents thousands of businesses and their tens of thousands of employees who are interested in promoting a pro-business environment and, on a non-partisan basis, supporting candidates and elected officials in our state and region who endorse the free enterprise system and sound, responsible business practices in government.

WHY JOIN BUSINESSFORCE? Until now, each business person has had to "go it alone" in conducting time-consuming independent research to properly evaluate state and local candidates or issues in our region. There has been no real way of sharing information or goals with others before making decisions of support while also understanding and complying with often-complicated election laws. Now, with BusinessForce, businesses large and small will have a unified voice speaking out for good candidates and good government. Together, we will make "the voice of business" a stronger force or good government in our region!

HOW SUCCESSFUL IS BUSINESSFORCE? Since its creation in 1998, over 80% of BusinessForce-endorsed candidates have won elections. Each election year, candidates and elected officials from throughout our region eagerly seek the coveted BusinessForce endorsement. BusinessForce is working to provide you with the political clout it takes to improve the business climate that affects whether you can do business successfully. BusinessForce can only be successful and truly effective with your financial commitment and support. Your contribution will assist in electing candidates to the legislature, county commissions and school boards in our region who are responsive to, and supportive of, our business community.
