U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson has announced that he will host a free statewide Small Business Summit on Tuesday, August 17, 2010.
This workshop will be held at Macon State University, Conference Center, 100 College State Drive, Macon, Ga., from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
Advance registration is required, and registration details appear below.
The forum is an opportunity for small business people to hear from professionals on best practices, federal and state tax responsibilities, information on contracting with the federal government, using social media to enhance your business, and growing a business through exports.
The summit will also feature a panel discussion on credit available to business owners in the current economic climate. Presenting organizations will include the Small Business Development Network as well as over 40 state and federal agencies that work specifically with small businesses.
Warner Robins Procurement Counselor Larry Selman will be representing the Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center at this event.
“I am honored to be able to offer this excellent opportunity to small business people from across Georgia,” said Sen. Isakson. “As someone who ran a small business for more than 30 years, including in difficult economic times, I know how helpful it can be to get good advice from professionals. Whether you are considering opening a small business or have run your own company for many years, this summit has something to offer you, particularly in the current economic climate. I encourage anyone interested in meeting with professionals in the field to participate.”
