COSE is a non-partisan, member-driven organization that serves as the unified, collective voice of small business in Ohio. We are eager to work with you and to continue our collaboration with policymakers and key stakeholders to tackle the issues that stand between small business owners and their ability to achieve success. 

The COSE Advocacy Team

We work directly with our small business members to provide local, state, and federal government with specific, pragmatic ideas and opportunities that further foster a positive environment and allow for small business achievement – for all of us – in all of our communities.

Advocacy Leadership

The COSE Small Business Caucus acts as a standing body charged with understanding, discussing, and taking action on legislative and regulatory issues on behalf of our members. The composition of the Small Business Caucus is intentional and reflects the diversity of our organization’s members and their beliefs.  

Member Forums

COSE members are offered numerous forums to discuss, research and share the specific values, principles and public policies that directly affect their businesses. 


COSE equips small business owners with a voice and provides our members with enhanced access to government agencies and elected officials.
