Message from the CEO The Impact of Small Business

Small businesses, however you define them, play a vital role in our economy. Over 90 percent of all businesses in the United States have less than 25 employees. Small businesses account for nearly 50 percent of our national GDP. Eighty percent of our local Chamber members have 25 employees or less. Small businesses continue to be incubators for entrepreneurship, innovation, and employment growth and the majority of new jobs are created by small businesses. Small businesses are at the heart of our economy, which is why The Chamber hosted the 33rd Annual Small Business Awards on June 19 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The event, presented by Hickory Point Bank, recognized 37 business owners and not-for-profit directors. Of those, five outstanding community entrepreneurs received the following awards: The recipient of the New & Emerging Business Owner of the Year award was Tara Davlin Holcomb of The Farmstand by Willow City Farm. Willow City Farm raises livestock to feed and educate our community. They provide full permaculture and responsible stewardship of our land. Tara is proud to sell their products in their retail store, The Farmstand, and various farmers’ markets, while also donating products to various charities. The recipient of the Small Business Owner of the Year award was Shaun Lambert of Lambert Custom Pools. The business was started with the vision to help homeowners create the backyard of their dreams. Shaun’s mission is to help create family traditions and memories. Lambert

Chamber submits letter to City regarding CWLP

On June 26, 2018, The Chamber submitted a letter and study commissioned by The Chamber to the City of Springfield during their public comment period regarding the Integrated Resource Plan – the plan for the future of City Water Light and Power. The letter stated, “We believe it is a critical time to take a close look at past, present, and future operations of the utility in order to chart the best course forward for CWLP, the City of Springfield, our business community, and our residents.” During 2017, The Chamber worked with the City of Springfield, Sangamon County, and the EmberClear Corporation during the due diligence process of considering the possible development of EmberClear’s Lincoln Land Energy Center in Pawnee, Illinois. As a part of that process The Chamber commissioned The Power Bureau, a recognized leader in the power industry led by Mark Pruitt, the first Director of the Illinois Power Agency, to evaluate the impact of the proposed natural gas power plant on Analysis of Market Impact regional wholesale power prices, as well for Proposed EmberClear as the financial impact on CWLP.

Energy co-op can save members on utility costs The Chamber offers a benefit to its members that could potentially save them hundreds or thousands of dollars in annual utility costs through a commercial energy cooperative (co-op) managed by CQI Associates. CQI is a reputable company that has been helping businesses save on their utility rates for over 11 years in the Decatur area.

The benefit is only available to Chamber members who receive their electric and/or natural gas services through Ameren. The co-op leverages the power of a large group to negotiate a lower commercial electric and/or gas rate that a single business could not secure on its own. CQI Associates aggregates the kilowatt-hour (kWh) load of the commercial accounts, which reduces the overall cost. The benefits your business or organization receives when you join the commercial energy co-op include: •

Co-op members can expect to save about the equivalent of their July electrical bill and/or their February natural gas bill.

Members receive a fixed rate on electric and natural gas bills — guaranteed not to change during your contract term.

Deregulation has sparked healthy competition. As the energy market changes in the future, the Co-op will

negotiate on the members’ behalf. •

The Co-op offers options to obtain up to 100% clean, renewable, wind-powered electricity.

Signing up for the service is easy and free to members.

The Chamber’s mission to enhance our members’ success and advance our economy is met through programs like these that help businesses reduce their overhead and allocate those dollars to other needs or their bottom line. For more information, or if you would like an estimate on what your company’s savings will be, contact David Earhart at (217) 525-1173 ext. 215 or dearhart@ gscc.org, or Brian McLemore (CQI) at (217) 855-8417 or brian@cqiassociates.com

AUTOMOTIVE, LODGING & TRANSPORTATION SMTD Changes Moving Area Transportation Forward Sangamon Mass Transit District’s (SMTD) 50th Anniversary in 2018 ushers in a host of improvements that bolster overall transportation options in the Springfield area. After navigating state funding compromised by prolonged budget fights, SMTD is now in the midst of a major transformation. January brought the launch of a new downtown shuttle service. This high-frequency route encompasses only the downtown business district to the east and the State Capitol Complex to the west. The focus is on lunch-time commuters to the large crop of new and established downtown restaurants, along with the historic sites on the route. SMTD begins the next 50 year chapter with a bang. We are updating one third of our fleet and upgrading technology that will benefit passengers, dispatchers and administrators alike. The transfer center on Capitol Avenue between 4 th Street and

5 th Street will soon be a distant memory. The long awaited off-street transfer center is under construction on 11th Street between Adams and Washington. New routes are being implemented soon to represent the first complete route system overhaul in the district’s history. There were previous tweaks to the system that is still built on the original system’s routes dating back to the 1960’s. New planning technology allows SMTD to now take a broader look at how we provide service and how efficient that service performs. One highlight will be regular services to the West Wabash business corridor. Regional service to communities outside the immediate Springfield boundaries will also be new in 2018. Reaching into what official planning organizations call “urbanized areas”, SMTD is planning service to Chatham, Rochester, Sherman and Riverton/Spaulding. Shuttle type service will provide public transportation from those communities into the existing

SMTD system during peak morning and afternoon times. Sangamon Menard Area Regional Transportation (SMART) will cover most of the rest of Sangamon County’s rural communities with their door-to-door, on-demand service. This will mark the first time county residents will have a completely interconnected public transportation system. Finally, as the current projects wrap up, SMTD has plans to replace the antiquated drop-till fare box with a new system similar to what passengers enjoy in larger cities. With all of the improvements in place, and a new multi-modal hub planned within the next decade, SMTD will be poised to offer a public transit system more attractive to sustainability-minded passengers and more likely to move our car-dominated area toward a more transitaware population.
