In the last three weeks, the Quad Cities Chamber has arranged for several small businesses in our region to meet with Illinois Representative Mike Halpin and Chuck Weaver. At these visits, Halpin and Weaver learned about what several of our small business members do, and what challenges, issues, and barriers small businesses face. We were delighted by the candid and quality discussion, and which included possible remedies and business feedback on proposals. Both leaders expressed their gratitude for the insight and perspective.
The Chamber is always looking to ensure our members’ voices are heard and that our political leaders’ are informed of your issues. In celebrating Small Business Week, the Chamber would like to remind you that no issue is too big or small. Whether you’re experiencing problems with a regulation or policy, struggling with road construction access, or are interested in meeting with or hosting an elected official, we want to help you. Don’t hesitate to contact Henry, our Director of Government Affairs, and thank you for doing business in the Quad Cities!
