Do you own a small business or thinking about starting one? Join our Small Business Breakfast Series at the James V. Brown Library facilitated by Steve Brady. Each month will have a theme and a speaker who will give a 30 minute presentation. The rest of the time is for discussion with your peers. Each session provides valuable action items that you can implement that day, and provides a 'one sheet takeaway' to help jump-start that change. Come and network, come and learn, come and grow.

Continental breakfast is provided so registration is required. Breakfast begins at 7:30, presentation begins at 8:00. Please use the Welch Wing doors by the city parking lot.

We meet the 4th Tuesday of the month.
