[WEBINAR]: Resiliency Academy

Wed, 10/21/2020
8:30am - 10:00am

Local communities and small business go hand in hand. Businesses provide goods and services, jobs, taxes and community leadership. Vibrant cities and towns have a variety of businesses along with civic, social and cultural activities. Community pride is strengthened with strong economic activity and thriving small business.

UNH Extension and NH Small Business Development Center are partnering to offer Resiliency Academy, bringing together small business and community leaders to work toward a resilient future. The academy will focus on developing small business and community resiliency plans which will aid in economic recovery and future planning. 

Resiliency Academy will kick off this fall with a free webinar, Planning for Resiliency. The same webinar is offered twice for your convenience on October 21, 2020 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. and October 27, 2020 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
