Seminar taps into international trade

A free Business-2-Business seminar is planned from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 18, at the Hampton Inn in Kalispell.

There will be presentations by one of Montana’s preferred inbound tour operators, and by Marlee Iverson, international travel trade manager at MOTBD.

The information presented during this seminar will be helpful for those planning to attend an international roundup planned in Kalipsell next April.

SCORE recruitment event planned

SCORE — previously known as the Senior Corps of Retired Executives — is a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration. It was formed in 1964 to help aspiring and existing businesses succeed. Since then over 10 million people have been helped in pursuit of their business goals. With SCORE, you will be part of an extended team of volunteers representing all facets of the business community.

Some volunteers have worked as executives, some have been entrepreneurs and small business owners, while others have experience in universities, government and the military.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor and being a part of the Northwest Montana SCORE Chapter or just learning more about SCORE, please plan to attend.

A representative from SCORE’s national office will be speaking, as will State District Director Michelle Johnston and Assistant State District Director Evelyn Halvorson. If you are planning to attend or you have questions, contact Michelle Johnston at 406-442-5966.
