The Sparwood Chamber of Commerce is celebrating Small Business Week with seminars for Elk Valley business owners.

October 15 to 19 is Small Business Week in BC and the Sparwood Chamber of Commerce is celebrating with a series of morning coffee sessions for Chamber members and Elk Valley business owners. There will be three business related seminars held throughout the week, with each session running from 8 until 9 a.m. at the Causeway Bay Hotel.

Tess Menges, from the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises from the Government of Canada, will visit the Chamber on Monday, October 15, to provide information on how to become a supplier of goods and services to the federal government. She’ll be teaching attendees how to market to the federal government, how the government does its buying, and how to keep track of opportunities to bid on government purchases.

On Thursday, October 18, the RCMP and Sparwood Fire Department will put on a presentation titled ‘Business Security and Protecting Assets.” The seminar will cover inside processes and give business owners and managers tips and advice on how to keep their business safe.

Wrapping up the week, Marcia Johnson will lead participants through a social media marketing for business workshop on Friday, October 19.

All three seminars are free of charge, however seating is limited and reservations are recommended. For further information, or to register, contact the Sparwood Chamber of Commerce at 250-425-2463.
