The Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) is a non-profit which represents small businesses through political advocacy, networking, consumer education, and support services. Located in Chicago, IL, this organization represents small businesses across Chicagoland, and has chapters in Chicago, Lake County, North Shore, the northwest suburbs, the southern suburbs, and the western suburbs.

The SBAC supports small businesses through their many events and educational meetings, which assist businesses in networking, advocating for their rights, and learning about sound business practices which can boost their profits and increase brand loyalty. Their advocacy initiatives include reforming tax credits, supporting the Marketplace Fairness Act, addressing pension issues, establishing a healthcare cooperative to stabilize healthcare costs for businesses, and setting aside procurements for small businesses to be awarded for fair business practices.

Membership benefits include joining the health insurance private exchange, receiving increased access to capital for business growth, office sharing programs, savings programs which include strategic partnerships, a pro bono program offering turnaround consulting to struggling businesses, and a retirement plan exchange. They also have an SBAC Young Professionals Board, which assists young professionals in navigating the often complicated environment of the modern workplace. This includes networking events that introduce professionals to others in their field, and volunteer opportunities to assist professionals in giving back to the community and supporting local non-profits.
