Successful businesses of all sizes, chambers of commerce, neighborhood associations, individual professionals, residents, churches, hospitals, schools, law enforcement agencies and a variety of other institutions make up our membership.

As an advocate for North St. Louis County, NCI is connecting our community, municipal and business leaders to collaboratively work toward positive growth, economic development (commercial and housing), and marketing to sustain our great quality of life.  NCI is a 501(c)6 and North County Regional Development Association is our 501(c)3.
