The Arlington Heights Chamber and the Village of Arlington Heights have a strong relationship that allows for a village in which small businesses can succeed. The Small Business Development Agreement (SBDA), which began in 2013, provides new and existing businesses an advocate to navigate through Village policies and procedures. The experience of the chamber staff is invaluable for businesses to be prepared for a project and assisted with strategies to make the process timely and successful. Whether a member of the chamber or not, every Arlington Heights business has access to this free service through the SBDA.

If you are a small business owner in need of assistance with navigating Village government procedures for signage, remodeling, compliance issues or changing policies to help the business community succeed, contact Jim Platt at (847) 253-1703 or
