Veterans in Small Business.
American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC. National Small Business Training Network.
These materials provide information on conducting small business training seminars for veterans. First, a discussion is presented of the development of the guide based on 1983 field testing of the seminar and evaluations conducted by Small Business Administration (SBA) officials, the seminar contracts, and trainers. The next sections deal with the focus and length of the veterans seminars and provide organizational details on registration procedures, meeting sites, speakers/trainers, publicity, and follow-up and evaluation procedures. Following a list of handouts and resources for the seminar, a sample agenda is provided and each of the seminar sessions is explained. Tips on networking and a checklist for speakers/trainers are followed by training outlines for six topics: (1) business planning; (2) marketing and promoting your business; (3) financial management; (4) record keeping; (5) law, taxes, and insurance; and (6) home-based businesses. Each training outline lists goals, objectives, handouts, equipment needs, and the agenda for discussion. Finally, a budget checklist, sample registration form, and seminar evaluation form are provided. (HB)
