Accelerating the Small Business Community

Connecting. Educating. Small Business.

The Small Business Owners Committee will connect Small Business Owners to programs and resources – as well as give an outlet to speak openly about the unique challenges these business owners. 

This committee will bring people together to continue the conversation on how we can work together to improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the business community.

“My hope is to create a synergistic collaborative through the use of our collective intellectual capital to greatly accelerate the small business community of the Chamber.”

Franklin Rivera, Chair, Small Business Owners
