Your Small Business Toolbox
Here’s where you’ll find information and tools you can use to accomplish everything from getting a loan to marketing your business to making valuable connections with other businesses.
Leads to Business
The Chamber’s Leads to Business groups bring people together who will learn about each others’ businesses and become advocates for one another. This requires a lot of time and trust as it’s understood that as you are helping generate leads for your fellow group members (whose business mission you’ve spent time getting to know and understand so you can sell its merits/do a quality referral), and trust other Committee members are doing the same for you.
There are currently two Leads to Business groups; both are mostly comprised of representatives from Chambers members with other businesses as their primary customers.
