Fine, Evelyn; And Others
This annual report highlights the activities and accomplishments of Daytona Beach Community College's Center for Small Business (CSB), which offers on an ongoing basis counseling sessions, seminars, workshops, and a resource library for local businesses. Following introductory material which describes the CSB advisory board and summarizes recent projects, the report lists the training workshops and seminars conducted by the Center and notes the national recognition accorded to the CSB by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges. Among the other activities and projects cited are: (1) a demonstration project to train older adults in small business management; (2) counseling services; (3) activities undertaken as a Department of Commerce "multiplier" (as such the CSB offers services and counseling sessions to business owners on topics such as exporting and business planning for start up and growth); (4) involvement in Junior Achievement, the Small Business Coordinating Council, and other community agencies; and (5) efforts targeted toward the minority community through the planning of a Community Development Corporation. Finally, the report underscores Daytona Beach Community College's commitment to the CSB, which is evidenced by the provision of faculty salaries and space. A list of 1981 seminars and workshops, which indicates their duration and number of participants, is appended. (KL)
