The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce is committed to supporting member business development by offering low or no cost educational opportunities on topics of interest to the business community.
An integral part of our commitment to member development is our Small Business Development Center of Hampton Roads (SBDC) which the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce has hosted since its inception in 1989.
Business Education Series The Business Education Series sessions are intended to provide Chamber members with opportunities for practical up-to-date information and training on topics of interest to business. In addition, the series provides members, who are experts in these topics, the opportunity to make connections with other members and increase their visibility.
Small Business Development Center Training Programs and Seminars The SBDC offers 2 to 4 hour training programs and seminars, delivered by subject area experts on a variety of topics including business planning, marketing, management, legal considerations, accounting and bookkeeping, financial analysis, technology, access to capital, and business basics.
