Presenters are recognized in The Business View magazine monthly calendar (value $265), in The Business View Weekly electronic newsletter (value $90), regular postcard emails to Chamber membership as well as targeted audiences.
There is no compensation for conducting training seminars. You will be asked to allow the Small Business Development department (SBD) to post your slides or handouts on the members only section of the Chamber’s website.
All proposals received will be reviewed by the SBD department staff and selected as needed. The staff will determine if the topic is one that has been deemed important to the small business community through formal and informal surveys, individual requests, staff member visits, breaking news, etc. If you have previously presented for the Chamber you may or may not be asked to attend an interview session. If you have not presented at a Mobile Area Chamber event, and the SBD staff wishes to conduct an interview, you will be contacted to schedule a short sample presentation.
Proposals may be submitted throughout the year, but are not guaranteed to be accepted for presentation at any time. Decisions will be made on an ongoing basis as the needs of the small business community are identified. Training events are scheduled at least 90 days out.
