Small Business Program
2020 Program Sponsor
The purpose of the Small Business Program is to help our small business members survive and thrive. We endeavor to do this by leveraging the expertise of our members through quarterly breakfasts where we bring in subject-matter experts to educate members on key success areas. We also collaborate with community partners such as the Small Business Center at South Piedmont Community College and SCORE to help provide advice and counseling for Small Business Members. Finally, we highlight our small businesses with our Small Business Spotlight.
The Union County Commissioners declared May 10-16, 2020 as Union County Small Business Strong Week at the request of the Union County Chamber. We planned the week as a way to celebrate, strengthen and support small businesses in our community. The week contained educational panels on how to rebound and recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak, videos highlighting how local small businesses owners pivoted in the midst of the challenges, and tools to help businesses reopen responsibly.
