The Alabama Small Business Commission was created as an appointed group of state small/independent business owners responsible for advising governmental entities. The Commission serves as an advisory body in formulating policies, encouraging innovation, and discussing issues critical to the economic growth of small/independent businesses and their interests in the State of Alabama. Furthermore, the Commission promotes policies to assist new business start-ups and expansion of existing businesses.
