SCORE Seminar Sept. 20 Focuses on Business Plan
The local Sandhills Chapter of SCORE (Counselors to Ame-rica's Small Business) continues its free series on Saturday, Sept. 20, with its popular "How To Write A Business Plan" seminar.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. The class starts at 9 a.m. Pre-register by calling 695-3938.
All seminars in the series are held in room 203 of Van Dusen Hall on the Sandhills Community College campus.
SCORE and the Small Business Center of Sandhills Community College jointly sponsor this "Business Basics" series of six consecutive seminars that are valuable for every entrepreneur. The second seminar, "Great Beginnings," is scheduled for this Saturday, September 13.
A business plan is essential to a potential lender so that it can make an informed judgment about your thoroughness in addressing all the issues of a business.
A carefully constructed business plan gives an owner a road map to making a business successful, a SCORE spokesman said.
This seminar provides real-world examples and take-home handouts to provide participants with the equipment to make the plan a winner.
The first seminar in the series, titled "The Right Stuff," had to be canceled last Saturday because of the effects of Tropical Storm Hanna. Plans have yet to be set for rescheduling that seminar.
Registrants attending all five of the remaining seminars will receive a certificate entitling them to a $75 credit from SCORE for their first business advertising expense.
The local SCORE Chapter has 20 active members and is dedicated to assisting small businesses through free and confidential counseling as well as offering free professional seminars.
The chapter is currently expanding these activities and is seeking additional motivated volunteers.
More information on SCORE's counseling activity and a complete description of each seminar can be found at the Sandhills SCORE Web site, www.sandhills score.org.
