Why Join SBAM?

Join Michigan’s Largest Business Owner Network

Running a small business takes hard work and dedication. But it also takes a lot of resources to run smoothly, stay compliant, and deliver a profit.

SBAM has been delivering solutions to Michigan small business owners since 1969. Our members are as diverse as Michigan’s economy. From accountants to appliance stores, manufacturers to medical, and restaurants to retailers, what unites the SBAM membership is the spirit of entrepreneurship!

We also understand that while every business is different, there are common needs. Our tools help you attract and retain talent, manage employee benefit programs, offer discounts on the things you’re already buying, and help you stay compliant. Our work at the Capitol helps ensure Michigan is a great place to own and operate a small business.

SBAM has five membership levels, providing a variety of options to best fit your needs. If you’d like to discuss which option is the best fit for your small business, contact SBAM’s Membership Sales Department at (517) 482-8788 or
