In its mission "To support unrestricted trade and investment between the US and the EC, promote a healthy, open and productive business environment between the two regions… and provide a platform for discussion and exchange of ideas for business leaders in Europe and in the United States…", The EABC set forth to better communicate its message on the web.
To achieve these goals, the European-American Business Council partnered with leading web design & internet marketing firm, Blue Water Media. Blue Water Media's experience in digital media and communications in the non-profit industry will prove invaluable for a new and successful website. With the launch of the new website, The European-American Business Council has taken the first steps towards a new presence on the web. The new website offers personalized content for users and consolidated tools, calendars, and resources that improve the site's usefulness. All of this translates to a website that not only performs better but is more easily managed by the foundation staff.
