The SBAC and our Partners would like to extend an invitation to our  Gubernatorial Candidates Meet and Greet on January 10th!

Join us for a constructive dialogue with our Gubernatorial Candidates about the issues impacting the small business community in our state.

 We need real reform and leadership for small business in Springfield. Small businesses significantly impact Illinois’ economy. They represent 98.3 percent of all employers and employ 48.0 percent of the private-sector labor force. Small businesses are crucial to the fiscal condition of the state and numbered 1.2 million in 2010. Let’s give small business the voice it deserves!

Confirmed Candidates: Senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, and Treasurer Dan Rutherford

We have allocated time for each candidate to speak, followed by a period for questions from our audience.

Fee is $40 and includes buffet lunch. To purchase your ticket click here.
