Chamber, ISBDC To Host Business Resource Sessions

Terre Haute, Ind. – The West Central Indiana Small Business Development Center and Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce are teaming up to provide advice and resources to businesses in the restaurant and retail sectors that are being impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

On Wednesday, March 18 from 8am to 1pm, team members from both the Chamber and ISBDC will be hosting half-hour video conferences, conference calls or in-person visits with businesses. The sessions will provide a time for business leaders to express their specific concerns, get information about available state and federal resources and help build strategies for the entire West Central business community.

“We understand it is important to provide as many resources as possible to our small business community,” Chamber President Kristin Craig said. “They are the lifeblood of our economy and finding ways to help them navigate this uncertain time is critical.”

Adds West Central ISBDC Regional Director Courtney Chipol, “As with traditional business, there are uncertain times and obstacles, and at any time we are here for you in the journey. Whether to brainstorm tactics to help your business continue and thrive or offer advice and resources, we are here to support and work with you to modify your business model as needed. You are not alone.”

Participants are encouraged to click here to reserve a free session time.

Following next week’s strategy sessions, an industry-specific strategy resource page will be released.

General resources are already available at

Strategy sessions with additional industries will be scheduled based on need.
