Small Business

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations. More than 96% of U.S. Chamber members are small businesses with 100 employees or fewer. Small businesses account for three-quarters of all new jobs in this country and embody the spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and individual initiative.

Meet some of our small business members and learn about the benefits of joining the U.S. Chamber’s small business community.

The Council on Small Business


The Council on Small Business is the primary vehicle by which small businesses take part in determining the Chamber’s small business strategy. The Council is the U.S. Chamber’s principal standing policy committee and action group representing the issues of concern to small business. In addition to formulating small business policy, the council assists small business members in creating effective grass roots actions and strategies on legislative, regulatory, and international initiatives. The group is able to bring to the Board’s attention small business issues they regard as important or comment on the small business impact of policy being formulated by other standing Chamber policy committees.
