The cities of Ceres and Modesto and State Controller Betty T. Yee will co-host a free small business webinar to help local business owners learn about important resources available to them from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, July 14.

Small business owners – and those looking to start a business – can learn about the federal, state, and local programs available to help their businesses succeed, including grants, loans, and contracting opportunities.

“We know business owners can’t always attend seminars or workshops because they’re busy running their business,” said Ceres Chamber of Commerce President Brandy Meyer. “This is a great opportunity for local businesses to get the help they need to sustain and grow their business online in a live format.”

Along with Controller Yee and city representatives, key agencies will be on hand to offer their expertise including the Ceres Chamber of Commerce, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Department of General Services, Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, California Office of the Small Business Advocate, State Franchise Tax Board, EDD, and the Secretary of State.
