Building a Supportive Environment for our Downtown Entrepreneurs
September 13, 2019
Jefferson City, Missouri
9 am - 4:30 pm
The workshop location is:
Governor's Office Building
200 Madison Street, Room 450
Jefferson City, MO 65101
This quarterly workshop has been approved for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for American Institute of Architects (AIA) in the amount of five credits.
For many communities, our small businesses are working at an
“independent” level, trying their best to succeed and in some cases, to just
stay afloat without an active support system in place to help them address
needs and market opportunities. While overall economic development efforts
in communities of all sizes don’t always include attention and support to
small businesses, Main Street is all about strengthening our existing local
economy by supporting our downtown entrepreneurs. From developing retail
promotions that work, to cutting-edge tools that add understanding on trends
and best practices, this session will highlight important strategies to not only
position your Main Street program as a valuable partner, but consciously build a strong supportive environment for the success of our downtown entrepreneurs.
Registration is $100 per person for Missouri Main Street Members; $200 for non-members through August 30th. Add $25 to member and non-member rate beginning August 31st. Save on registration and become a member.
All cancellations/refunds must be submitted in writing. Cancellations after September 9th are not refundable.
