SBAC Earns Better Business Bureau Accreditation

Date: Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Chicago, IL- August 28, 2013Becoming an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau is an honor not accorded to all businesses; because not all businesses meet eligibility standards. Small Business Advocacy Council is pleased to announce today that it has met all BBB standards and is now an Accredited Business.

“Accreditation in the BBB is by invitation only,” says Steve J. Bernas, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “And only those businesses that meet our high standards, and pass the review process are approved by our Board of Directors.”

As with all businesses that are accredited by the BBB, Small Business Advocacy Council has committed to the BBB Code of Business Practices. The Code is a comprehensive set of policies, procedures and
best practices on how businesses treat consumers. These standards call for building trust, embodying integrity, advertising honestly and being truthful. Bernas adds, “To maintain their Accreditation a business must be transparent, honor their promises, be responsive to their customers, and safeguard their privacy.”

“We are proud to be a BBB Accredited Business,” said Elliot Richardson CEO of Small Business Advocacy Council. “We are very serious about our commitment to excellence and good customer service, and we are excited about the SBAC’s partnership with the BBB to support small business growth.”

The Small Business Advocacy Council has been in business just over three years and has nearly 800 business members across the Chicagoland area.
