The Chicagoland Chamber provides year-round programming to our members and the public through various events, educational programs, business services, workshops, and more. Through highly curated content and connections, our members stay informed about the latest industry trends impacting their business.
Entrepreneurs and small business owners come to the Chamber to take advantage of our Small Business Development Center (SBDC), which offers resources, business advising, educational workshops and clinics, and entrepreneurship training free of charge. We also conduct an annual Small Business Outlook Survey in partnership with Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business, which provides timely information about the state of Chicagoland’s small business community. And through our James Tyree Emerging Business Leadership Award, we present a $50,000 award each year to one high growth small business with a commitment to philanthropic values.
Mid-Market Chicago focuses on growing and supporting middle market companies (defined as $10 million – $1 billion in annual revenue) across the Chicagoland region through educational programming, networking events, and other resources. Mid-Market Chicago also surveys middle market companies to better understand the key topics they face.
Business Councils provide opportunities for members to connect with one another while providing input that helps drive the Chamber’s sector-based programming. We currently have a Healthcare Council and a Technology Council.
With talent attraction and management as a top priority among businesses of all sizes, the Chamber has launched a portfolio of talent initiatives to provide our member companies with resources and services to help them meet their workforce needs while making Chicagoland a global hub for talent.
