Diverse Business Shaking Hands


Business Watch is a trade association serving the unique needs of government contractors. Our members train side-by-side and work hand-in-hand with elected officials and administrators as colleagues, solving problems together. We strengthen working relationships in ways other professional associations simply cannot.

Business Watch makes us all better. Partnerships matter in local government, Business Watch provides candid perspective for community building.

- Michael C. Cernech, Tamarac City Manager
