Orangeville SBEC presents

Don't forget that as an artist selling and maintaining inventory you might want to learn more at these business seminars, etc. Event Information SBEC (business seminars, etc)
* Emergency Preparedness for Small Business An emergency can endanger a business's ability to continue operating. Statistics demonstrate that one in four businesses won’t reopen after a disaster. January 22nd, 2020 * Doing Business with Government Representatives of the Government of Canada and the Town of Orangeville will discuss how the government buys products and services. January 30th, 2020 I have noticed that most of the organizations that add cultural components to our lives are in need of volunteers. (I’m sure that this volunteer issue confronts just about every organization.) Do share this notice with as many people as you can so that they might see the contribution your organizations make to our area. And possibly, someone might just join to be a part of the organization or volunteer for events. Orangeville Call for Artists
