Business Resource Events Coming To Newaygo County
WHITE CLOUD, MICH- This week, the Newaygo County Economic Development Partnership (NCEDP) announced the launch of a new lunch and learn series beginning Wednesday, October 26th.
The monthly series is scheduled to run through May of 2023 and will highlight various support opportunities that local businesses can take advantage of. Topics will vary each month, focusing on resources that support talent attraction & retention, training grants & resources, small business support and increasing sales channels. Locations for the events will rotate around Newaygo County and include a boxed lunch. Seating will be limited, in order to ensure the attendees are able to fully capitalize on the resource.
“The amount of support available can be overwhelming, and our hope with this series is to hone in on specific resources and tailor the information to Newaygo County employers,” said Julie Burrell, Economic Development Director for NCEDP. “Our hope is, this format will allow for additional businesses to take advantage of the resources available to them.”
October’s event, held at the Newaygo Michigan Works offices will feature Kelsey Rhoda, Program Director from the Muskegon Area Procurement and Technical Assistance Center. She shared “government contracting can be an intimidating topic of discussion. The PTAC program is designed to assist businesses in understanding how to work with the government, and show businesses it can be done and built into their business plan.” Kelsey will break down how businesses can position themselves to win government contracts, in addition to assisting business leaders with obtaining certifications like woman or veteran owned.
This series will occur on the fourth Wednesday of each month in October and November 2022 and kick off again in January through May 2023.
