By Lina Kelly

Thatcher, AZ—The Eastern Arizona College Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will present a free seminar, “How to Stabilize and Grow Your Greenlee County Business,” on Tuesday, March 5, from 6-8 p.m. at the Arizona Workforce Connection - Greenlee One Stop at 300 N. Coronado Trail in Clifton.

EAC SBDC Business counselor Charmaine Chidester will discuss the obstacles Greenlee businesses encounter in their attempts to be viable. Chidester says, “The mentality of ‘build it and they will come’ just doesn’t work in small towns. Businesses have to be proactive and make sure they are taking advantage of every available resource.”

The seminar will cover micro-loans, marketing, accounting, and working with other local businesses to promote growth. The seminar is free but registration is encouraged as seating is limited. Please contact Chidester at (928) 651-3673 or charmaine.chidester@eac.edu with any questions or to register.
