In celebration of 40 years of service from Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) across America,  the Sul Ross State University SBDC will host a special luncheon on Tuesday, March 3.

The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in Suite 102 of the Sul Ross SBDC, located at 500 West Avenue H.

The lunch is free and open to the public.

Also, SBDCs from across America will celebrate SBDC Day on Wednesday, March 18.

“SBDC Day will unite the nearly 1,000 SBDC centers across the country and the hundreds of thousands of clients they serve,” said Training Coordinator Rachael Chavarria. “Sul Ross will join other SBDCs by sharing, in real time, the success stories and notable impacts SBDCs collectively have on the small business community at large.”

Registration for the March 3 luncheon is encouraged but not required.
