Workshops designed to help local small businesses flourish
Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis’ office will once again offer a variety of workshops throughout the year beginning in January, designed to give local small business owners the unique opportunity to have direct access to and learn from industry experts.
Each year, the office of Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis hosts the successful We Mean Business expo, where business owners and potential entrepreneurs are given the unique opportunity to sit down face-to-face with government officials and a variety of industry leaders. The sessions offer free advice and guidance on licensing, permitting, financing, and other business related matters during this one-of-a-kind opportunity for businesses.

It is my hope that our workshops will continue to provide critical information to emerging businesses.”
