Big Voice for Small Business

Running a small business means there’s not a lot of free time. So when a concern or problem arises it’s vital to have someone on your side. The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce Small Business Advisory Council (SBAC) has your back. As the voice for small businesses in the region, the SBAC is an advisory committee to the Chamber’s leadership and the Mayor of the City of Madison. SBAC representatives are Chamber members who own their own businesses and have worked on successful initiatives including the Crime Prevention & Safety Resource Guide and the Road Construction Survival Guide.

The SBAC’s dedicated members are listed below. Think you have something to add to this group and want to join the Council? We’d love to have you. We review openings every year.  To learn more about the Small Business Advisory Council, please contact Brett Halverson, the Chamber’s Public Policy Manager.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

    Teena Browder, Cork ‘n Bottle
  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

    Tim Lightner, Owner, Two Men and a Truck
  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.

    David Stark, President, Stark Company Realtors
  • The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business. The Chamber provides multiple channels for business awareness, networking opportunities and helpful educational programs. Being a member of the Chamber has really made a difference in helping expand my business visibility, growth and development in Dane County.
