A SCORE Vancouver Seminar in conjunction with the Vancouver Community Library to recognize Vancouver's May Small Business Month

The Necessity of a Business Plan

This 90 minute workshop will cover an overview of Business Plan design and, more importantly, the principal underlying reason for even doing a Business Plan in the first place.  We'll touch on several of the key Business Plan essentials, leave plenty of time for questions and outline the many free resources through both SCORE and the Vancouver Community Library available to you.

This workshop is being offered to the community as part of Vancouver's May Small Business Month.  SCORE volunteers will be on hand and can assist you with future free business mentoring if desired.  The Workshop is free but registration is advised to assure sufficient seating.

Your Discussion Leader will be Arthur Wm. "Bill" Ruttledge, a 40+ year veteran of the financial services industry during which he consulted entrepreneurial small businesses and major non-profit institutions & publically held corporations.  Bill has been active with SCORE over the past eight years.
