ANNOUNCEMENT: SMITH RIVER RANCHERIA PARTNERS WITH “ONABEN”
Smith River Rancheria and ONABEN to present small business development workshop
ONABEN is an acronym for Oregon Native American Business and Entrepreneurial Network Inc. ONABEN is a 501(c)(3) corporation, created in 1991 by four tribes in Oregon to encourage the development of a private sector on their reservations. Models from traditional small business development programs were adapted to fit Native American cultural norms and reservation situations. ONABEN is looked to as the “go to” organization when tribes in the Northwest need assistance in development of entrepreneurship programs.
Smith River Rancheria and ONABEN will offer a FREE two day course for small business development on March 27th and 28th. All “Indianpreneurs” are invited to attend, and we strongly encourage people who are interested in operating a Licensed Child Care Home in Oregon or California to register. The training workshop will benefit anyone who operates or is considering operating a small business, but Community and Family Services Department has an urgent need for Family Child Care Homes to provide care for infants and toddlers.
This workshop will cover business concepts indispensable for anyone starting-up or running a small business. Instructors will also identify and help participants avoid common pitfalls.
Training will be conducted in the Nan-tsun (Mountain) room, upstairs at Lucky 7 Casino on March 27th and March 28th. All class materials, snacks, and lunch will be provided at no cost to the participant.
Reserve your space today by calling Andromeda, Community and Family Services, at 487-9255 ext.3136 or Darrell, TERO, at 487-9255 ext. 3190. We need your registration information by March 21st to ensure we have enough class materials for all participants.
