    There are many great reasons for entrepreneurs like you to belong to the Small Business Association of Michigan.
    “It's a great networking tool, and it's a great networking organization and it's a great political advocacy organization.”
    Bob Spence is the executive vice president of Spence Brothers Construction.
    “Talk to a number of different entrepreneurs and small businesses from across the state and just talk to them about how they do business and their challenges, how they're dealing with things, it's been very valuable for me, in particular
    getting the entrepreneurial type perspective from some really small businesses, is kind of energizing for me. Because you know, we're a little bit larger and deal with different things than let's say a start up would. So it's to get that sort of diversity of thought and approaches -- I don't see anywhere else where I could get that other than SBAM.”

    Kim Bode testimonial 102319

    There are many great reasons for entrepreneurs like you to belong to the Small Business Association of Michigan.

You see a lot of the same business owners, you're all there to support each other, you're there, we all give advice to each other freely. But then, SBAM staff being able to know what's going on, on the legislative side of things, and how that's going to affect my business, is incredibly important.”

    Ginny Seyferth testimonial 101719

    There are many great reasons for entrepreneurs like you to belong to the Small Business Association of Michigan.
    “The Small Business Association is just really an asset to help small businesses become better businesses and learn from one another and in really embellish, you know, what you've learned and how I can take some of those best practices within my own organization.”
    Ginny Seyferth is the founder and president of nationally-known public relations and communications firm SeyferthPR in Grand Rapids.
    “I think it's the opportunity to have somebody looking out for small business from whether it's taxes or you know, workers comp issues. It's a resource. I think when we get too limited into what we do every day and we don't look at the bigger picture I think it's problematic.”

    Dave Moore testimonial 100919

    There are many great reasons for entrepreneurs like you to belong to the Small Business Association of Michigan.
    “SBAM within the state of Michigan, hands down, has developed the best level of content and leadership material and networking for me and without SBAM, I don't know that I would know where else to go get it.”
    Dave Moore is president of VP Demand Creation Services, founded 50 years ago in Traverse City.
    “The best thing SBAM has done for me in terms of delivering content, delivering knowledge, because at the top of every organization, there's a president/CEO, and it's very lonely. And you no longer have a mentor. Unless you formed a board of directors, you no longer have a boss. And so where do you go for those resources? SBAM has developed that for me.”
