Small Business Opportunities
August 19, 2016
The Chamber’s Small Business Committee works with the mission “to promote the growth, success and recognition of small businesses by promoting training, networking opportunities, and engaging public awareness.”
From Shop Local to Small Business Month, the Chamber also has the opportunity to partner with the Alabama Small Business Development Center for Programs and Events. The SBDC at Jacksonville State University is a member of the Alabama SBDC Network.
This month, on Wednesday, August 31, from 2:00-3:30 P.M. the Chamber and JSU Small Business Development Center are partnering to present “Small Business Certifications and Financing Opportunities” at the Chamber of Commerce. This event, featuring Scott Stewart from ADECA’s Office of Minority Business Enterprise, will cover business government contracting, business certifications, opportunities for women owned and minority owned businesses, as well as small business lending and loans and SBA resources and information.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the Small Business Development Center, Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, and the East Alabama Regional Planning and Development Commission.
There is no cost to attend this workshop, but seating is limited. Call 256-237-3536 or 256-782-5271 to reserve your seat.
