Small businesses are at the core of our Chamber membership. The Chamber offers a variety of educational and networking programming to help your small business thrive.
The Chamber maintains a partnership with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Long Beach to offer one-on-one business counseling and educational seminars at the Chamber.
The Chamber also hosts monthly educational seminars, known as “Business Needs 2 Know,” to discuss and educate your business on the full range of issues involved in running a successful small business. Recent topics have included effective marketing, reading financial statements, smartly utilizing social media, and creating a business plan.
The Chamber helps to promote the nationwide “Small Business Saturday” program, which highlights small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Whether you’re a business owner, community organizer, or customer, there are plenty of ways to support local small business on the day after Black Friday.
