Our Mission

The WCA is Westchester County’s leading economic development and business advocacy organization.

The Westchester County Association unites and mobilizes professional leaders to advance issues and lead initiatives that strengthen our regional economy. Our mission is to drive Westchester’s economic vitality, stimulate new business development and job creation, and provide our members with the resources and talent they need to grow.

For over 70 years, the WCA has been the leading independent voice of Westchester’s business community, developing and advancing proactive policies and initiatives that foster smart growth and economic vitality in the region.

The WCA represents the foremost professionals in real estate, healthcare, finance & banking, hospitality, technology and other professional services; as well as municipalities, nonprofit organizations and institutions of higher education – supporting their objectives through direct advocacy and original programming.

The WCA also is focused on promoting Westchester County as the region’s best place to live, work and play: offering a high quality of life; access to good jobs; world-class schools, cultural institutions, dining and recreational opportunities; and close proximity to New York City.
