With America’s 28 million small businesses representing more than 99% of all employers, accounting for nearly half of all private sector workers, and generating 61% of net new jobs*, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is firmly committed to advancing a strong small business agenda.
The Small Business Council is the U.S. Chamber’s principal policy committee and action group representing the issues of concern to small business. In addition to formulating small business policy, the council assists in creating strategies on legislative, regulatory and international initiatives. The group is able to bring to the Chamber’s Board of Directors attention issues they regard as important or comment on the small business impact of policy being formulated by other Chamber standing policy committees.
The majority of the membership is comprised of small business owners whose size range from the self-employed to larger enterprises. Other members may include CEO’s or small business directors of state and local chambers of commerce, small business advocates of member associations, and small business representatives of organizations dedicated to serving the interests of small businesses.
