Solar 101: Co-op Info Session for Boone, Hamilton and Marion Counties

In 2002, Mayor Jim Brainard asked the Department of Community Relations to create the Carmel Small Business Association Network. The CSBN was to work in a similar manner as CNAN. This group was created to allow small business owners in the City a direct communications link to the Mayor and other City employees with whom these businesses have correspondence. These meetings allow small businesses owners the opportunity to get information directly from the Mayor about issues directly affecting their businesses such as infrastructure improvements, economic development projects, Carmel Redevelopment Commission plans and other future direction for specific areas of the City. Lunch is provided to attendees by a sponsor, who is solicited by the Community Relations staff.

The Department:

  • Determines quarterly dates for CSBN meetings coordinating with Mayor’s schedule
  • Decides current issues to be discussed and coordinates for appropriate speakers
  • Prepares updates for CSBN information packets and emails documents to members
  • Created and maintains database of all CSBN members
  • Issues letters and emails to all CSBN members notifying them of upcoming meetings as well as keeping them informed of other community issues.
  • Attends and staffs CSBN meetings

CSBN Members:

We are in need of lunch sponsors for future CSBN meetings. If you are able to be a sponsor, or perhaps co-sponsor with another business, please let me know. The choice of menu and offerings are the sponsors.
