E A R N I N G S C A L L Dear Chicago,
Yesterday the Chicago City Council voted in favor of Mayor Emanuel's 2016 Budget proposal. This was a difficult vote, but an important one for the future of Our Chicago as we could no longer afford to operate without addressing our structural deficit and sorely needed revenue.
Please join me next week to discuss the impact the 2016 budget will have on City finances and communities on our third Quarterly Earnings Call.
When:Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. (CST)

S M A L L B U S I N E S S Attention small business owners! You are invited to participate in a survey to better understand the needs and expectations of small businesses in the Chicago area. This study is being conducted jointly by Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce and Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business and is supported by the City of Chicago Treasurer’s Office.
This survey takes about ten minutes to complete and will serve as your entry to win two free airline tickets complimentary of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce!
All responses will be kept completely confidential.
The survey focuses on Chicago’s small businesses—their goals for success; the challenges they face; and the issues that matter most to them. The information gathered will include demographic data, public policy concerns, hiring plans, growth trends, economic outlooks and an overview of what types of resources and services small businesses and entrepreneurs currently utilize or would like to see available.
Not a small business owner but know someone who is? We encourage you to share this survey link!
