What is the Small Business Series?
We're glad you asked! The Lancaster Chamber launched the new Small Business Series in 2021! We have hosted sessions focused on equipping small businesses with the resources they need to succeed. While this is called the Small Business Series it's not just for small businesses. We encourage anyone to participate, no matter the size of your business.
June Session - Succession Planning
If you intend to exit your business someday, you need to be pro-active and plan years in advance. It is not too early to think about legal considerations with your business and getting it ready for third-party sale, insider transition, or closure. We will teach you to be pro-active with your legal planning rather than be forced to exit reactively from an unforeseen circumstance.
