Free Business Seminars at BCC SBC - Did You Know That?

Today I attended my first meeting of the Brunswick Community College Small Business Center Advisory Board.

Most of the folks on the Advisory Board are in the photo below:

From left to right they are: Tom Hemphill, Director of the BCC/SBC; Onya Galloway, Administrative Assistant; George Yu of the Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity and many other businesses; Cathy Altman, Brunswick Chamber of Commerce; Jim Bradshaw, Director of Economic Development for Brunwick County; Bruce Brown, North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty and Quantum Results Coaching; Jeff Harvell, Cape Fear Business News and Lighthouse Publishing; and Bob Stinson of Patriot Management Systems.

Did you know there are 58 SBCs in North Carolina and all of them are charged with providing free seminars and others services to small businesses and entrepreneurs in the state?

Did you know that the Brunswick Community College Small Business Center is offering 26 free seminars in the spring of 2010?

That's right! Free! No charge. You just have to sign up, show up, and learn. If you do all three your business will benefit.

Topics include:
  • QuickBooks Pro for NonProfits.
  • Microsoft Office program training (various).
  • Marketing with Social Networking.
  • Tax Implications for Starting a Small Business
  • and a lot more.
These seminars are free to students, the instructors are excellent, and the range and breadth of Small Business Center services will likely surprise you.
