Online Group Training, a Third Thursday Webinar

More and more clients request or expect online programs. Online trainings allow participants to be mobile, log in from anywhere, save travel or childcare costs, and save time, a hot commodity for any business owner.  Online training can help reach a larger geographic audience, save money on rental spaces, and fulfill grant requirements.

Join us as we welcome Joy Taylor on October 17, 2019 at 2:00 pm PT for Online Group Training for a step by step instructions on how to take current in-person classes and deliver and bring them to life online via video conferencing.

Policy Update

Federal: This week, Congress passed and the President signed a continuing resolution (CR) to fund the Federal Budget that continues current spending levels until November 21. What remains to be seen is how the impeachment inquiry will affect the bi-partisanship needed to pass the budget.

State: AB 857, a bill that allows for public banks and will increase access to capital for small businesses – was signed by Governor Newsom on Wednesday.
