The Tennessee Small Business Development Center and the University of Tennessee at Martin Regional Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Center have announced they will provide a training session — “Business Survival in Tough Economic Times” — in Obion County for businesses in the surrounding area.
The session is planned for 11:30-1 p.m. April 23 at the Obion County Industrial Training Facility at 204 South Second St. in downtown Union City.
“The free training event is designed to address a wide range of steps business owners can take to preserve cash and maintain business operations during the present national economic recession. It is critical for all businesses to fully explore all possible measures to offset reductions in cash flow and bottom line,” said Patrick Geho, Tennessee Small Business Development Center state executive director.
“I believe this is a very timely and much needed training series and I am excited that we can provide this free service when discretionary money is in very short supply,” REED Center coordinator Hollie Holt said.
To register, go to www.utm.edu/reed or call the REED Center at (731) 587-7333 or the Obion County Chamber of Commerce at 885-0211.
Seating is limited.
