What we do?
The Annual Summit Awards honor leading business people and organizations who have contributed to the economic and cultural growth of the region. Each of the awardees is carefully selected from the many businesses and organizations in the region for their outstanding performance and excellence in their qualifying category.
We are a registered Illinois non-profit regional organization dedicated to the concerns and issues affecting small and minority businesses located in our service area, which includes seventy-nine communities within an area approximately bounded by Evergreen Park to the North, Gary Indiana to the East, Peotone to the South, and Joliet to the West.
Our Strengths Our strength and our voice comes from our membership, the small businesses located throughout the South Suburban Region. Successful activities such as our Business Before Hours, our Annual Meeting, and our Annual Summit Awards provide essential networking opportunities and needed information and resources to address the needs of small businesses.
Our Commitment We are committed to continually provide our members with educational programs, such as entrepreneurship, business management, human resources, office training and marketing. We act as a regional voice regarding workforce training needs for today and the future. We strive to establish and maintain political awareness on the local, state and national levels for the issues that impact our members and communities.
