Erie County Legislature Chairman John Mills and County Clerk Chris Jacobs are partnering with the Springville Area Chamber of Commerce to host a free Small Business Summit from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10 at the Springville Country Club, South Cascade Drive, Springville. Refreshments and light breakfast start at 7:30 a.m. followed by the Summit starting promptly at 8 a.m.
“I have been a business owner for nearly 40 years and during that time I have learned a lot about the challenges that entrepreneurs face. In addition to operating a local business, I am honored to serve as your County Legislator, and have gained a unique perspective into how public and private entities can collaborate for the greater good of our community. This Summit will provide business owners with the information they need to succeed and I am always available to discuss any challenges our businesses are facing,” said Legislator Mills.
“Small businesses are vital to the economy in Erie County and we need to work together to assist them and improve the climate in which they operate,” said Clerk Jacobs. “As a small business owner, I look to that experience to improve upon the many services provided by County Clerk’s Office as we continue to focus on ways to provide customers more efficient service delivery, reduce expenses, increase revenues and expand our customer base, which all help grow and support our local economy.”
The summit will discuss new ideas in small business development and allow business owners to network with one another. Space is limited. Attendees are asked to register with the Springville Area Chamber of Commerce at 592-4746.
