This set of materials was developed to assist with the dissemination of the Minnesota model for small business management education, five sections of information are presented.

The second section presents two models for legislation: (1) a bill for an act (relating to adult vocational education and training, establishing education and training programs for small business and farm entrepreneurs, and appropriating money) and (2) an amendment to the Omnibus School Aids Bill (current block funding for adult small business and farm entrepreneurship management education). The third section provides a job description, qualifications, and suggested requirements for certification of small business management education instructors and coordinators. The fourth section describes a model conference for soliciting support for small business management education; included are conference objectives, agenda, and conference support material (why have a small business management program; a brief historical review of the development and growth of the management education program for farmers and ranchers; establishing minority small businesses [case studies]; and the development, design, and evaluation of the Minnesota model).
