Small Business Forum

Small Business Forums

The USICOC hosts an annual Small Business Forum to present Chamber members with an opportunity to learn about topics relevant to small business owners and entrepreneurs.  The Chamber hosts speakers from a variety of public entities and private corporations to discuss existing or future organizational needs and the processes by which entrepreneurs and member companies can gain access to available business opportunities and public resources to help member companies get started.  Each year, the Chamber features successful small business owners who share their unique journey.  Every Small Business Forum has been a must-attend event for small business owners and entrepreneurs in North Texas.
