Tillamook, OR – The TBCC Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will host an open house March 21, 2018 from 9:30 am – 11:30 am in celebration of the 2nd Annual SBDC Day. The community is invited to visit the SBDC office located in the Partners for Rural Innovation building, 4506 Third Street, for light refreshments and to meet Arlene Soto, SBDC director, and staff and to learn what resources are available in Tillamook County to support small business development. “What we do at the SBDC makes a positive difference for individual business owners and for our communities,” said Soto. “I love when an entrepreneur shares with us the impact SBDC services have made on their business. We hope people will stop in at the open house and share a story or two.”
