Today is Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Day with over 1,000 events being held across the nation. I’m planning to attend an event at the Richard Stockton College office in Atlantic City later this morning. That NJSBDC office, led by dynamic director Carol Waties, has been helpful over the years in the development of Baysave’s business plan in light to the enormous challenges we face in the lack of climate change leadership and over-arching lack of state and federal government support for the bayshore region. Since Cumberland County does not have its own SBDC office, support for both Cumberland County NJ and Atlantic County NJ are combined under one office in Atlantic City.
I’ve been involved with the SBDC since about age 22 when I joined as a volunteer student counselor in the middle of my MBA program at Temple University. I still remember some of my first cases and the challenges we faced in helping them.
Happy SBDC Day!
