Small businesses are the backbone of our community’s economy and infrastructure, but thriving as a small business owner can be hard. For example, research from the National Federation of Independent Businesses shows that more than 50 percent of small businesses fail because of internal deficiencies rather than externally generated problems. That’s why it’s important to connect and share best practices for success. One of the Chamber’s leading strengths is helping our members make the connections and access the information that make a difference.
The vision of the Small Business Council is to serve as the advocate for business by encouraging, supporting, recognizing and being a resource that enriches business practices within our community.
Chamber member companies who have 50 employees or less automatically get access to all SBC programs and benefits.
