UW-Stevens Point partners with local chamber and business owners

Not long ago, Chief Executive Officer at the Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce, Debbe Kinsey, met with the UW-Stevens Point Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Director, Melissa Meschke, to discuss a possible partnership between the Merrill Area Chamber and the UW-Stevens Point SBDC. The objective of most Chambers is to help local businesses flourish, and the Merrill Area Chamber is no different; in collaborating with the SBDC, various programs have been established to help both the students at UW-Stevens Point gain real life experience and the local business owners receive aid in continuing to build their businesses. 

There will be four parts to the Business Education Series in 2018 and all programs will be held from 8:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. at the Merrill Area Chamber. Chief Executive Officer Kinsey and Director Meschke look forward to witnessing brilliant collaborations between students and business owners in the works and anticipate highly beneficial results for both parties.
