  • Welcome to the Small Business Advisory Council! Welcome to the Small Business Advisory Council!

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Do you have a great idea and just don't know where to start? Do you have an existing business that could use a little help? Is your business established and doing well, but now you're ready to retire? The Small Business Advisory Council is here to help!

    The Small Business Advisory Council is comprised of experienced professionals in insurance, accounting, marketing, law and more.  As a resource to share insights on common mistakes and provide you with the connections to be successful, these dedicated Chamber members stand ready to assist you in starting, sustaining and growing your small business.  

    We can help you with business plan development, locating financing options, human resources best practices, social media outreach, and much, much more!

    Whether you are exploring a new idea or have been in business for 30 years, the Pickerington Area Chamber's Small Business Advisory Council members can help you build relationships and connect you to the people you need to truly help your business grow!

    How does it work? All you need to do is show up to a meeting! The Small Business Advisory Council meets on the 2nd Monday of every month. A short business meeting is held at 8:00 a.m. followed by a business roundtable where you can present your ideas or problems and receive advice and direction in an informal and friendly forum. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We are building a resource toolkit for YOU, which will provide tips on what businesses need to know, opportunities to seek out additional information, and a news section to keep you up to date on relevant articles for businesses and entrepreneurs. The best part….this is open to ALL businesses in the Pickerington business community, regardless of your membership status with the Chamber AND it’s FREE!*  We truly want to help YOU be successful! (*If services need retained, an agreement will need to be made amongst the two parties).

    For years, Chambers of Commerce have struggled with sharing the true value of a Chamber membership, but in all actuality, it has been in front of our noses the entire time.  The true value and benefit of your membership is the opportunity to connect to those who can help you be successful!  That’s right, it’s all about building relationships, but connecting to the right people to truly help you grow.  If you need something…your Chamber can get you connected! 

    As a community, we share the same hopes to build a prosperous place to live and to work.  Your Chamber and this new Council are here to see that through!
