Please join the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber of Commerce and Small Business Majority at the Napa-Sonoma County Small Business Development Center for an interactive presentation on CalSavers, California's new individual retirement savings program for small businesses unable to offer a workplace-based retirement plan. We know small business owners in Sonoma County are looking for ways to attract and retain a talented workforce without impacting their bottom line. CalSavers will be a portable workplace retirement savings account for private sector workers whose employers are unable to offer a retirement program. This means small businesses will be able to help their employees access a retirement savings program at no added cost to their business.

  • Retirement crisis in California
  • Benefits of offering retirement plans
