EDC to offer free workshop on business planning and financing on Lopez Island

The San Juan County Economic Development Council will present a free half-day workshop for small businesses and entrepreneurs on Lopez Island, Monday, Jan. 10 from 8 to 11 a.m. at Lopez Center.

The business and financing workshop course material will be presented by James McCafferty, director of the Skagit/San Juan Islands Small Business Development Center, and a management consultant for over 10 years.

As part of the workshop, McCafferty will cover business financing, discuss a variety of financing options and will provide a reality check for those considering a new or expanded business venture. He will be available for one-on-one consultation after the workshop.

Participants in the workshop will leave with the resources and support they need to create a business plan including a realistic financial plan. In addition, McCafferty will cover current federal and Washington State tax incentive programs for small businesses.
