Join the SBAC Today!

The Small Business Advocacy Council is a non-partisan, member driven organization that promotes the success of small business through advocacy, support services and educational programs. The SBAC is effective because we are laser-focused on the needs of small businesses and our efforts are tailored to be hyper-local, so that we can be responsive to what our membership really cares about.

Now more than ever, small businesses need to have a seat at the table with decision makers. As a non-partisan organization, the SBAC works with elected officials from both sides of the aisle – anyone willing to stand up on behalf of the small business community. We put progress over partisanship, advocating for a functional government focused on policies to help Illinois not only get back on track, but thrive!
