Small Business Summit

This is the latest in a series of small business summits we have held throughout the district.  Starting and building a successful business is very rewarding, but it can be challenging.  These events, which have proven to be very popular, give owners, managers and staff an opportunity to learn important business practices and to share their experiences with others.

Senator Gallivan is a member of the Senate committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business and served as co-chair of a statewide committee on Regulatory Reform, working to eliminate burdensome rules and regulations that drive up business costs. 

The summit will also feature Frank Swiatek, who serves as Senator Gallivan’s Senior Advisor for Small Business.  Swiatek is a private sector consultant and has worked with numerous small businesses and over 25 Fortune 500 companies. He will discuss customer service techniques and how to create loyal customers.

Anyone interested in attending the event can register or get more information by calling Senator Gallivan’s office at 716-656-8544 or by emailing Mitch Martin:
