Small-business workshop offered at Apollo library

| Monday, Jan. 11, 2010

Apollo Memorial Library will present a small business workshop beginning Wednesday at Apollo Memorial Library.

"Start Your Own Business for Fun and Profit," a six-part workshop, will be from 7 to 9 p.m. and include topics such as preparing a business plan, acquiring capital, understanding legal matters and reviewing financial forms.

John Chernega, owner and operator of Cherry Wood Golf Course in Bell, will lead the program.

Chernega received a bachelor's degree in business management at Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a concentration in accounting and labor economics.

Cost is $10 for the introductory session; $45 for the remainder of the course. Alternate means of payment, including volunteering at the Apollo Memorial Library, may be substituted for the fee.

The program's goal is to transform the Alle-Kiski Valley into an entrepreneurial success story by enlisting the talents and dreams of local residents in creating a business model that's effective across a wide range of products and services.

Enrollment is limited. Contact the library at 724-478-4214 to register.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
