The Upper Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce Business Advisory Program
We are pleased to extend our exclusive Business Advisory program to members of the Upper Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce at the Classic and Premier membership levels.
In joining the Chamber, you have already decided to invest wisely in your business. Members selected to be a Business Advisor have the opportunity to develop a more meaningful connection with members while sharing business expertise. In turn, advisors gain visibility and are viewed as being a trusted business resource.
In addition to advising selected members on a one-on-one basis, Advisors will have the opportunity to be featured as keynote speaker at Chamber programs such as the “Ask the Expert” and Business Networking Exchange lunch events.
For members who wish to take advantage of this business advisory program, the resources that are being offered can better assist you in growing or expanding your business. As a Classic or Premier member, you can take advantage of the advisory program which covers the following business-related topics: management practices, human resources, finance, marketing, legal, taxation as well as IT consulting for start-ups and existing businesses.
Our exclusive list of advisors has been carefully screened by the Business Development Steering Committee and the Chamber. Our board of advisors are trustworthy, have experience with business start-ups and small business expertise in their given field, extensive communication skills, deep respect from their business peers and active involvement in the community.
"Programs such as these are very important as communities recognize that real growth comes from the expansion of existing business already in the community and the potential for development of new ones."
