Energy Grant/Volunteers in Medicine

Small Business California has received a grant from the Energy Foundation to develop a newsletter called Building Stronger Chambers. This newsletter identifies Chambers around the state that have identified funds and assistance for members from utilities, water agencies and air districts.

If you are part of a local Chamber that has also been working on this please let me know. Could you also let me know if your local Chamber would like to receive this newsletter. See newsletter below.

I am pleased to report that the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders is celebrating its 25th anniversary and in honor of this and in recognition of the efforts of Biff Bernhard, one of the Founders on NAGGL and myself as a small business advocate has donated $2500 to my Volunteers In Medicine clinic in SF Clinic By the Bay. NAGGL has been a great advocate for small business over these 25 years and I am honored that they chose to recognize Clinic By the Bay in celebrating their success.
