ABOUT THE HBCI

HBCi is a Hudson-based business league with a mission to stimulate and maintain a vibrant commercial district in the City of Hudson. 

The goal of the HBCi is to create a variety of new marketing, branding and promotional programs that successfully feature the diverse mix of local businesses in Hudson to a wide range of consumer audiences. During the next year, this includes a marketing-driven website, an updated and refreshed Walking Guide, and a robust online and offline presence through regional and national advertising, publicity and social media. In addition, we’re exploring a range of promotional events highlighting the best of what Hudson offers. 

HBCi is dependent on the volunteer input of Hudson business owners and other interested professionals with useful expertise. Click the following links for a list of the current Board of Directors and to find out how you can get involved on one of our six Committees.
