The San Juan County Economic Development Council will present a free half-day workshop for small business owners and entrepreneurs on Orcas on Tuesday, June 19, from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the Eastsound Fire Hall.

The business and financing workshop course material will be presented by James McCafferty, of the Economic Development Association of Skagit County, a management consultant for more than a decade.

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.
