Running the program is discussed in the second section, with suggestions given on scheduling, registration processes, question and answer sessions, and forms and forms returns. The third and final section deals with follow-up activities, including certificates of completion, written question response, and personal assistance. Appendices contain schedules, forms, bibliographies, and other materials used at past seminars, a list of Small Business Administration Field Offices and publications, and a list of State commerce and industrial development departments.
