Small business isn't small to us.

The Abilene Chamber of Commerce will be spotlighting individuals and businesses who, through their independent entrepreneurial spirit, play a vital role in building the community and the economy. To be nominated is a reward in itself and a nomination serves as a great tribute to a company’s leadership and employees. All small business nominees and recipients will be recognized at the Salute to Small Business Luncheon.

Salute to Small Business Week is Presented by First Financial BankStar Auto Group, and America's SBDC at Texas Tech.
