Every day, the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce works to make West Virginia a better place to do business by giving private-sector employers a voice in state politics and protecting business interests before regulatory bodies, the Legislature, and the courts.


ResourceU - Free Small Business Training Seminars

The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Committee is excited to begin a new series of ResourceU small business training sessions this month!  This is the second year for ResourceU and we are pleased to once again be able to offer this FREE service to small business owners throughout the state!  ResourceU is a small business “university” focused on providing our small business owners in West Virginia the tools and knowledge they need to make their businesses successful!

The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce works with local chambers of commerce, the West Virginia Small Business Development Center, Leadership West Virginia and West Virginia Executive Magazine to bring this valuable information and assistance directly to our small businesses at no charge.  Last year we trained hundreds of small business owners in Charleston, Morgantown, Wheeling, Martinsburg, Logan, Oak Hill, Lewisburg and Keyser.  This year we are bringing ResourceU into smaller communities in counties we haven’t visited yet, including Morgan County, Braxton County, Calhoun County, Taylor County, Ritchie County, Pleasants County and Monroe County.

ResourceU speakers will offer sessions in basic accounting, marketing, human resources, financing, asset and idea protection, leadership training, availability of capital and other resources, and other small business needs.  Basic tools, resources, networking opportunities, and building blocks for small business owners will be provided.

Here’s the ResourceU schedule for 2016:

    April 22, 2016 – Morgan County (Berkeley Springs)

    June 29, 2016 – Braxton & Calhoun Counties (Flatwoods)

    July 13, 2016 – Taylor County (Grafton)

    September 21-22, 2016 – Ritchie & Pleasants Counties (St. Mary’s)

    October 26, 2016 – Monroe County (Union)

    November 16, 2016 – Kanawha County (Charleston)

While there is no charge to participate in the trainings, registration is required.  Training slots are limited and available on a “First come, First served” basis.  Registration for the next session is available by clicking here.
