Client Advisory Committee


Members of CCV’s Client Advisory Committee work as an ad-hoc advisory board to our clients. The Committee enriches CCV services by offering clients specialized business advice and access to new resource networks that will help small, under-resourced companies grow to scale. This Committee forms a network of individuals committed to increasing opportunities for Chicago’s small businesses.

Committee members offer advice in the following areas:

  • Marketing
  • Financing
  • Human Resources
  • Insurance
  • Legal Issues
  • Manufacturing
  • Technology
  • Procurement
  • Accounting and Tax Issues
  • Mergers and Acquisitions

Time commitments vary depending on a member’s availability but on average committee members spend approximately 10 hours per quarter advising CCV clients.
