Chamber of Commerce offers FREE workshops
The Garland Chamber of Commerce has assembled a Small Business Council to share their knowledge in key areas of small business ownership and management.
The Chamber of Commerce has found that, in many instances, small business owners do not know where to find help. As a solution, they have put together a panel of experts willing to share their expertise at no charge. The council members’ areas of knowledge include marketing, managerial accounting, business law, banking and insurance and financial planning.
Those looking for solutions to the problems associated with owning a small business can visit with members of the council who will provide FREE advice and assistance at the workshops. The Garland Chamber of Commerce stresses that these workshops are not networking events. They consist of face-to-face visits with experts who can help with small business challenges.
Small business owners do not have to be members of the Chamber of Commerce to attend workshops.
There is no reason not to take advantage of this valuable service. The next workshop is May 30, 8 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. at the Chamber of Commerce, 520 N. Glenbrook Dr. in Garland.
