• The Small Business Advisory Council identifies the needs of, and serves as a resource for small businesses and those who serve them.

    Could you use some guidance on your marketing strategy? Are you looking for a plan to help your business increase its profits? The Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business Advisory Council can help! Council members will use their expertise to offer free guidance and advice with the goal of helping entrepreneurs become well-informed, well-rounded business owners, and to ensure the success of each business in the Mansfield economy.

    Small businesses in Mansfield face a variety of challenges, many of which can be addressed through a simple, candid conversation with a local expert. The trouble is, we see businesses every day that just don't know where to turn for help. The Small Business Advisory Council will bridge the gap by providing a forum for entrepreneurs and experts to meet and discuss the business's most pressing issues.

    Council membership is by invitation-only. The council is limited in size with 1 year service and a maximum of 3 consecutive years.
