Small Business Committee

In this Section:

The Small Business Committee under the Saipan Chamber of Commerce provides a venue for all member businesses to bring ideas for the betterment of our community, to strengthen our workforce, and to retain employees.


The one-hour meeting each month offers ideas and feedback which makes our Chamber stronger and more effective.  Several years ago, one great idea blossomed into the training seminars now offered by the Chamber in partnership with Island Training Solutions and with other experts.  These seminars give businesses a chance to improve the skills of managers and employees, which in turn helps employee retention.  These sessions have been very popular and will continue for 2017. 


We welcome all ideas and suggestions for ways to improve our businesses. We are also very interested in learning about your struggles and hardships so that we may work together to find solutions. The Small Business Committee meets at 10am on the second Wednesday of each month in the SCC conference room (3rd floor of Marianas Business Plaza). The scheduled meetings for 2017 are as follows:
