Small Business Lunch & Learn: “Disaster Preparedness for Your Business”

Monday, April 2, 2012

12:00 noon  –  1:00 p.m.

Huntsville-Madison County Public Library, 915 Monroe Street

Second Floor Events Room

Presenter: Linda Putnam, Restore Your Niche

Small to medium sized businesses are the most vulnerable in the event of an emergency. According to the Institute for Business and Home Safety, an estimated 25 percent of businesses do not reopen following a major disaster. How long a business is disrupted is dependent on how well the plan to recover was developed.

There are many risks for a small business owner to manage. Some you can control and some come out of the blue. Learn how to complete a Risk Assessment Checklist and make simple changes to protect your profits. 

Bring a sack lunch. Drinks will be provided. Questions? Contact Mary Moore at 256-532-5975 or askus@hmcpl.org. Read more about Small Business Lunch & Learn: Disaster Preparedness for Your Business

Logic Models are powerful planning tools used to graphically define an organization’s programs, initiatives, or the sum total of the organization’s work. Logic models are excellent for strategic planning, and some funders require logic models for grant applications. Learn the purpose, theory, and structure of logic models, and take away worksheets to begin building one for your organization.
