Background Information

The North Carolina Business Group on Health has held 4 organizing   meetings between two important business centers of the State; Charlotte and   Raleigh. We  invited over 50 business leaders at 4 different organizing   meetings between January 2011 and July 2011. On May 31, 2011, the North Carolina Business Group on Health was officially formed as a North Carolina 501(C)(6) non-profit organization.  Since then, we have continued to develop the organization into the premiere voice on employer healthcare issues for the North Carolina Business Community.

As a member of the North Carolina business community, you are invited to attend the our General Membership meetings; Fall and Spring.  Members can review the agendas and speakers of our past events in the members section.

The North Carolina Business Group on Health (NCBGH) was modeled after other successful business groups on health around the country,   most notably after our founding member’s experience with the Rhode Island Business Group on Health,  and the Connecticut Business Group on Health.
