LLCC discontinues business workshop at Jacksonville location

Lincoln Land Community College is offering free workshops designed for prospective business owners next month, but not in Jacksonville.

LLCC Executive Director of Public Relations Lynn Whalen explains why the sessions are only being provided in Springfield this year.

“Previously an ISBDC counselor did offer the workshop in Jacksonville. Those were discontinued following the counselors retirement on December 31st. Now we are offering everyone from the Lincoln Land district to Springfield for those free workshops,” says Whalen.

Whalen says LLCC has yet to fill the open position.

According to Whalen, the “Starting Your Business” classes provide information about preparing a business plan, financing a business, legal forms, taxes and registering a business name.

Sessions will run on June 2nd from 6-8 p.m. at LLCC’s Montgomery Hall and June 15th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the LLCC Capital Training Center.

To register call 544-7232.
