About

The SBAC is a non-partisan, member driven organization that promotes the success of small business through political advocacy, support services and educational programs. What We Believe: • The success of small business is a critical component of the nation’s economic well being • In order to ensure a fair and level playing field, small business must have a powerful and united advocacy voice at the local, state and federal level • Through cooperative networking, idea sharing and education, small business can flourish The SBAC, a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization, was established in 2010 and represents nearly 1,000 businesses in the Chicagoland area. An advocate for small business, the SBAC works to pass legislation to improve the small business economic environment. The SBAC took a leadership role in bringing a health insurance cooperative for small businesses and entrepreneurs to Illinois and championed a law setting a goal for 10% of all state procurement contracts to be issued to small businesses. Our current legislative agenda tackles the state's LLC fees, which are the highest in the nation, and we are also calling for greater transparency in Illinois' EDGE Tax Credit Program. The SBAC has formed powerful coalitions of business and community groups to fight for policy initiatives on behalf of the small business community, bringing together tens-of-thousands of small business owners with an increasingly strong voice. In addition to hosting 50+ events across the Chicagoland area each month, the SBAC offers numerous member benefit programs to help you and your business gain access to the valuable resources you need to reduce overhead costs and support your company’s growth and success, including health care, access to capital, office sharing, savings programs, disability insurance and Retirement Plan Exchange.
