Small business owners can benefit from a series of workshops this Fall. Eastern Maine Development Corporation is hosting the events. All the workshops are free, and are for anyone who has a business, or is thinking about starting one. “It helps them plan for their business, it helps them decide on policies and procedures that they need in their business and for the financing one it helps them either start or grow their business,” said Jennifer Brooks, Director of Strategic Initiatives for EMDC. A workshop is set for Tuesday from 8:30am to 10am at EMDC on Harlow Street in Bangor. For more information and to register, visit www.emdc.org .
