The Council has up to 80 members representing cities; chambers of commerce; economic development and trade organizations; community, business, and education organizations; along with various officers and at-large members.

As a public-private economic development advisory board to the Lee County Board of Commissioners, the Horizon Council is the voice of business in Lee County.  The Council’s mission is to improve Lee County’s business environment, retain and encourage expansion of existing businesses, and attract new and diversified employers.  It is the only public-private partnership of Lee County Government and business leaders.
