Recent Activity

The Small Business Advisory Council has several amazing events planned for this fiscal year.  Starting in September, we have our Power Networking event and we are also kicking off our 4 part Digital Series.  We have Mike Mitrione with Gunster for our CEO Connection in July.  With several new members on our council, new and exciting programs are being discussed.  It is our goal to provide the small businesses in our community the tools needed to grow and succeed.
