If you are an entrepreneur or a small business owner in Palm Springs, this forum is for you.

The city of Palm Springs and the Chamber of Commerce will host a free Community Business Forum on Thursday, April 5 for entrepreneurs and business owners to learn more about what businesses throughout the community need in order to succeed and thrive.

The 5:30 p.m. event will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, 277 N. Avenida Caballeros.

The question and answer-style forum will be led by City Councilmembers Geoff Kors and Christy Holstege, who comprise the City’s Economic Development/Business Retention subcommittee along with Nona Watson, CEO of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce.

“This is a fantastic way for the Palm Springs business community to meet with City leaders and Chamber officials and let us know how we can better partner with them and help them prosper,” Watson said in a prepared statement. “Palm Springs is currently experiencing a tremendous economic renaissance, but there is always room for improvement and we want to ensure we are inclusive and listening to the needs of everyone.”

This forum is one of many the Palm Springs Chamber has held over the years. Since 1937 the Palm Springs Chamber has served its members and the community with timely advocacy, informational forums, educational events, promotional opportunities and a thorough understanding of the community supported by our extensive committee structure.
