On Thursday, May 18, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce is hosting its third Small Business Day. The event will be at Legislative Hall in House Majority Hearing Room 411.
Why attend? If you own or lead a small business in the state’s capital, you need to know how Legislative Hall can help and impact your business.
The keynote for the event comes from Delaware lobbyist Robert Byrd. Byrd’s set to explain what small business owners and leaders can do to bridge the gap between small business and Legislative Hall. Byrd will also explain why it’s important for the two to be linked. That kicks off at 10:00 a.m..
At 11, attendees can join the House Small Business Caucus meeting chaired by Representatives Quinn Johnson, Daniel Short and Michael Ramone. That’s where you’ll learn about legislation that will affect your small business, and it’s also where you’ll have lunch.
Finally, at 1:30 p.m., attendees will have the chance to meet with their legislator to ask specific questions.
As Dover works to build up and maintain its small business community, especially the stores around Lockerman in downtown, initiatives like Small Business Day are crucial. Registration for the event is $15.
