    WHY A SUMMIT?
    The Harbor Springs Area Chamber of Commerce provides business guidance, thought leadership and business knowledge to its members by providing educational programs and events.  Through exceptional connections, collaborations and communication, the HSACC acts as a catalyst for civic-economic development alignment in the greater Harbor Springs area by advocating and supporting the entrepreneurial pipeline to maximize business growth and sustainability.
     
    EDUCATION APPROACH
    The HSACC has crafted three relevant topic panel and interactive presentations with moderated Q&A discussions for this first Summit. Utilizing the expertise of our members as panelists, the presentations will provide participants with important “TOP 5” takeaways, increased business knowledge and tools, and “TO DO” lists of advice on timely topics.
