The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce is honored to partner with the Small Business Center at Sampson Community College for a variety of seminars throughout each year. Seminars such as Social Media Marketing, Investing Local, Tax Updates, SimplyMaps, and many more, are offered through this partnership. We strive to offer seminars that meet the needs of the community in order to educate for economic growth within the business community.

With that in mind, we are excited to announce that the Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Center, and Sampson County Economic Development Commission have partnered to host the First Annual Hispanic Entrepreneurial Academy Series on the campus of SCC.

The Hispanic Entrepreneurial Academy will span three separate Saturdays — Oct. 26, Nov. 16, and Dec. 7 — and will include five seminars taught in Spanish. At the conclusion of the Entrepreneurial Academy Series, each participate will be recognized and presented a Certificate of Participation.

All seminars are brought to the community at no charge. Our first two of the five -art series will begin Saturday, Oct. 26. From 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., a seminar led in Spanish will be on “How to Start a Small Business” in room O-140 at Sampson Community College. The second seminar from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. will be “How to Write a Business Plan” also led in Spanish.

The remaining three seminars will consist of “How to Market your Business” and “How to finance your Business” on Saturday, Nov. 16 and “How to Meet your Tax Requirements” followed by the presentation of certificates on Saturday, Dec. 7. Again, on behalf of the hosting partners, we are looking forward to a great five-part educational series led in the Spanish language for the Latino business owners within Sampson County.

If you have questions about this opportunity or other educational seminars, give us a call at 910-592-6177. We look forward to continuing to serve the Chamber membership and local vommunity with such educational opportunities.
