Become a Volunteer Mentor

Thank you for your interest in BAC. Our members are volunteers.

Most of our members are retired business owners and executives who are looking to give back to the community by sharing their experience and expertise with start-ups and small businesses. Our members come from both large prominent Cleveland-based companies as well as smaller family-owned enterprises. Member expertise includes various industries and functions such as retail, distribution, marketing, manufacturing, strategic planning, sales, finance, accounting, operations, logistics, etc.

Hear from Jim LeMay about what BAC membership means to him: 

A typical BAC member is a careered professional who has


  • Owned a business

  • Managed operations at a senior or executive level

  • Enjoys fellowship with peers in a team environment

  • Wants to devote time to helping the next generation of entrepreneurs and business owners.

If you would like to share your experience and passion, please call BAC at (216) 426-2053 and speak with BAC’s Executive Director, Grace Ann Bourne, or email her at  She is happy to discuss membership details and the benefits a new member can expect from the organization.
