Chamber to Hold Small Business Summit & Resource Fair

September 29, 2011 - Southport, NC - The U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy reports small businesses—those with fewer than 500 employees—are generally the creators of most net new jobs, as well as the employers of about half of the nation's private sector work force, and the providers of a significant share of innovations, as well as half of the nonfarm, private real gross domestic product. To honor and assist this important segment of our economy and membership, The Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Wilmington SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) with financial assistance from Progress Energy will hold a Small Business Summit and Resource Fair on Friday, October 14th in The Brunswick Resource Center in Southport located at 1513 N. Howe Street.

The summit will begin at 8:00am with "A Two Way Conversation About Business With Your State Officials." During the summit our North Carolina legislative delegation - N.C. Senator Bill Rabon and N.C. Representative Frank Iler, will update business leaders with the latest information from Raleigh about legislation that affects business. At 8:45am the formal presentations will end and a resource fair will begin. The resource fair will give business owners the opportunity to network and shop vital services to a business' success. Resource providers include SCORE, SBTDC @ UNCW, USSBA, BCC SBC, business coaching, accounting, insurance, banking, financial planning, and more. The resource fair will end at 10:00am.

Attending the Small Business Summit and Resource Fair is free but registration is required by calling 910-457-6964 or email info@southport-oakisland.com by October 10th.
