The Small Business Council continues to identify ways in which the Chamber can best serve the small businesses within our membership; a segment representing more than 60 percent of our membership base. This past year, the group continued its popular GEM Talks, a guest series intended to engage business professionals and entrepreneurs; they provided a monthly business tip to Chamber members; and set the stage for next year’s procurement expo and business growth opportunities.
We have also introduced a few new programs this year:
- We are pleased to announce a new member discount program that includes discounted healthcare services and products. Dates to learn more listed on the Chamber website.
- A monthly Business Owners Group is a mastermind group of businesses providing mentorship and advice.
- A procurement expo that will introduce your company to larger accounts and provide information on how to do business with government entities.
