SBAC Member Lunch – Moraine Valley Community College **NEW DATE**

From: Tue, 11/12/2013 - 10:30 am to Tue, 11/12/2013 - 01:00 pm
Location: Moraine Valley Community College - Building M Moraine Room 3 9000 W. College Pkwy. Palos Hills, Illinois 60465

The SBAC, Moraine Valley College and area business associations have partnered together to offer this monthly educational panel discussion which includes networking and a luncheon. 

Small business owners struggle every day just to stay afloat. Lacking access to the wealth of resources large corporations have, small businesses find themselves working around the clock to understand a myriad of issues, obligations and laws which are complicated and constantly evolving. To help small business owners identify and understand all these business issues, we offer educational panels that feature highly sought after professionals with hands-on expertise in specific industries ranging from sales, marketing, HR and healthcare. The lunch will also provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the SBAC advocacy initiatives to support small business growth.

Speakers: 
Ken Olson, The Horton Group and Bill Shock, Unland Company

“The Healthcare Exchange Opens, Now What”

  • What is an exchange?
  • Who will use the exchanges?
  • Who won’t use the exchanges?
  • What about federal workers?
  • What if I’m a small business owner?
  • What kind of plans will I be able to
    buy?
  • How will this process work?
  • What if I can’t afford the premiums?
  • What happens if I don’t
    buy insurance by January?

The online health insurance marketplaces are open for business.  Problems still abound.  Do you understand what is happening to your business?  The answers can be found here by those who truly know, not theory, but those who are strongly involved.  Please join us and bring another small business owner who also needs answers.  We welcome the opportunity to also make connections to help you grow your business.

10:30 am – 11 am: Networking
