    Roundtable Brainstorming-2018 Resolutions for Your Business!

    Small businesses do not have the advantage of board of directors or even upper management to exchange ideas with on a regular basis so we invite all businesses to come and bounce ideas off of other attendees.  You may have questions on how to effectively do something that someone has already been through, you may have a solution to save someone else valuable resources.
