Training Opportunities / Power Hour

In addition to recruiting new businesses to join us in Day County, we also believe in helping the amazing businesses already here to improve and grow as well as support locals to step into ownership.

Power Hour is a great way to get connected to ideas and resources to do so. Power Hour includes a live presentation via webinar, followed by Q&A with local experts over the noon hour (BYO Lunch).

No cost or requirements to attend – just give me a heads up if you’re coming (or thinking about it!).

Several opportunities for professional and business development are available in Day County and the region. Watch for updates on this calendar, or contact Melissa at 345-3159 or email.
