We invite you to us and your fellow Chamber members and friends as we kick off the new year with our January 9th Business Series Luncheon. Our presenter will be Dr. Alice Davis of the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center . Our host is also the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center. Come one, come all.
Dr. Alice M Davis will give a brief presentation about how the Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center (SCCTC) is here to serve the business needs of the community. We want input from businesses as to the skills they require of our graduates and the certifications they would like to see job applicants possess. The SCCTC has an excellent working relationship with many area businesses and would like to expand this outreach. Dr. Davis will also explain how the business community can provide help to the school as we train the workforce of the future.
They will also briefly explain their new Business Development Incubator (BDI) which began operation in September. The BDI is funded by a grant from the USDA and is providing small businesses in the area with training on computers, QuickBooks, organizing a business, and much more. The BDI can also help with developing a business plan, completing applications to create an LLC or other business form, and any other business matters they require assistance with. For this year, these services are provided free of charge.
We will provide a tour of the various programs at the SCCTC and let members see how students are performing live work brought in by the public.
