The McLean County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to offer a number of initiatives designed to help train and retain current employees and ensure our area’s workforce for the future. Whether you work from your kitchen table, from a small storefront, from a warehouse or from a cubicle surrounded by dozens of others just like you, these Professional Development Programs are the rungs you can use to pull yourself up to the next level.

Small Business Roundtable

Chamber Calendar for Meeting Schedule

This group of small business owners and CEO’s meets once per month to share successes and challenges, gaining insights from the group in order to grow their business. Enrollment is open to Chamber members, however only one member per industry is allowed into the group. The group operates in an open, trusting environment where details regarding finances and human resources can be shared. For this reason no competitors are allowed into the same group and participation is only open to new members twice annually.
