If you own a small business, we encourage you to become an MSC member! We have the tools and resources to help you save money, earn more revenue, and become involved in our growing community of professionals.
We’re committed to educating and empowering all types of small businesses structures, including:
The most common type of small business structure, sole proprietorship means one person owns the company. This structure is easy to form and allows you to have total control of your business.
A corporation is a legal business entity owned by shareholders and is separate from its owners. They’re also broken down into several categories:
An LLC is a hybrid between a sole proprietorship and a corporation. It’s a good choice for people with significant personal assets that they want to protect.
A partnership is formed when two or more people share responsibilities for running a small business. You could be part of a limited partnership (one general partner has unlimited liability while the others have limited liability) or a limited liability partnership (every owner has limited liability).
A cooperative small business structure is similar to a non-profit organization. All users of the business are considered owners, member owners, or user owners.
If you have any of these types of small businesses, we encourage you to join MainStreetChamber. It’s a great way to promote your company, get advice from other professionals, and earn more customers. Contact us today if you’re interested in signing up!
