Are you a small business owner?
If you answered yes, then you certainly have a lot of the same issues on your mind as other small business owners in your area: markups, inventory management, competition, human resources, etc.
Now, thanks to the Orthodox Chamber of Commerce’s new “Small Business Alliance (SBA)” division, you have a new resource from which to receive guidance and network with others who have similar concerns. The SBA is a fantastic umbrella for small business owners in a particular community to utilize for networking and other tools to advance and prosper.
The first SBA chapter was recently launched in Lakewood, and the first New York chapter is now being launched in Queens. The inaugural Queens SBA event will take place on Monday, May 1st, 7:30 pm, at Carlos and Gabby’s in Flushing. David Rosen, former multi-unit licensee and Director of Operations at Starbucks, and current manage at the Four Corners Bagel and Café’ chain in Lakewood, will be the main presenter at the event.
Mr. Rosen will discuss various practical business management issues, and engage in a Q & A with attendees. There will be several other successful businessmen and management professionals at the event. Attendees are encouraged to discuss any other topic on their minds with presenters and other attendees.
Queens committee members include Duvi Honig, Founder and CEO of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce; Mrs. Odeleya Jacobs, the Chamber’s VP of Economic Development and Public Policy; Yaniv Meirov of CHAZAQ; Avraham Kesherim; Shimmy Perlman; Yaakov Serle; and Bernie Shafran. Chapters in other major Jewish communities in the New York/New Jersey area and beyond will be launched in the near future. Each chapter will feature general resources and events for small businesses in that community, as well as narrower industry specific resources.
“We are excited to bring this incredibly beneficial tool to small business owners and professionals in Queens and other communities,” says Mr. Honig. “The ability to network, in your own backyard, with business owners and experts who have a real understanding of local dynamics can pay dividends in every aspect of your business.”
Business owners and professionals are encouraged to register in the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce (at no cost) in order to be automatically registered in their local SBA chapter, and receive information and invitations to all Chamber and SBA events.
