Businesses have options

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

Small businesses are often first to feel the pinch when the Los Alamos National Laboratory tightens its belt, but there are several organizations whose sole purpose it is to provide support to those businesses. The Chamber of Commerce, Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC), Small Business Development Center and Los Alamos MainStreet all have come into being because of the need to create a sustainable and diverse Los Alamos economy.

The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce operates as a membership program of the LACDC. Member benefit and services include promotional and networking opportunities, group health care coverage, mailing services and conference room use. The Chamber of Commerce FAN Clubs and Business Breakfasts offer the opportunity for networking, making those business contacts and learning from other business people's experiences.

"Our mission is economic, cultural and civic development, but beyond that, we want to promote a positive sense of community," said Debbie Gill, member services coordinator for the chamber, in an interview Wednesday. "We implemented the Discovery Dialogs because it's beneficial to treat each other in a considerate manner."
