SBAC Launches “Stand Tall, Illinois” Campaign

Stand tall with small business.

The SBAC is launching Stand Tall Illinois, a campaign meant to unite and strengthen the small business community. Small businesses are the backbone of the economy. Now is the time to stand tall together to mend Illinois’ ‘backbone.’

We urge small business owners to ‘stand tall’ to achieve a collective voice in government policy. Together, we hope to improve the economic environment for small businesses in Illinois.

Our new campaign website includes testimonials from our members.

“I joined the SBAC because privately held businesses are my life and have been for 24 years,” says Stephen Ball, SVP Head of Business Banking at MB Financial Bank.

“We all are very busy with our jobs and family, but staying involved with the SBAC is one of my most important ‘to-do’s.’ I stay involved because I want to help make a difference. I don’t want to just ride the coattails of pioneers like Elliot and the SBAC team. I want to help them affect change.

The SBAC at its heart is built up of people of character who share a mission. If you are looking to network with a great group of people while truly helping businesses have a voice in Illinois, I would highly recommend becoming a part of the SBAC.”
