SPRINGVILLE — Senator Patrick Gallivan is teaming up with the Springville Area Chamber of Commerce and leaders in business development to present the small business summit at the Springville Country Club on May 2, from 8-9:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.

“The success of your business is important to us and we hope you will take advantage of this educational opportunity to make it even more successful,” said SACC Executive Director Marsha Reding. “We are honored to sponsor this free event that includes a complimentary continental breakfast. It is open to all businesses and individuals; however, seating is limited so please RSVP as soon as possible.”

“As a small business owner myself, I understand the challenges of starting and building a business, in today’s economy. I will share some of my experiences and talk about what’s being done in Albany to help businesses, including initiatives that are part of the just-adopted state budget,” Gallivan said.

The senator will discuss efforts in Albany to help small businesses succeed, in his presentation, “What is being done for small business in Albany.”

Frank Swiatek, who serves as Gallivan’s senior advisor for small business, will talk about “What businesses can do for themselves.”

Swiatek is a private sector consultant and has conducted over 3,400 presentations for organizations throughout the United States and Canada and has worked for numerous small businesses and more than 25 Fortune 500 companies.

Gallivan is the deputy leader of the Republican Conference for Economic Development and serves on the Senate’s commerce, economic development and small business committee. The committee is responsible for overseeing and developing legislation and policy related to state regulations, mandates, tax credit programs and growth incentives for all business sectors in the state.
