From the office of Joe Serra, our city's senior Representative in Hartford.
Rep. Joseph Serra on Friday urged companies to take advantage of a state Labor Department program created to help their businesses flourish and expand.
“If you are a business owner or employer of any size, I want to invite you to the free Middletown Regional Employer Step Up Conference Thursday, Sept. 10, at Middlesex Community College in Middletown,” Serra said.
“As you may be aware, the conference is not a job fair, but a great opportunity for employers of any size, including small businesses, manufacturers, retail, non-profit and faith based organizations to learn more about the numerous state programs that are designed to help grow their businesses,” he said.
This free event, from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with registration and light refreshments beginning at 7 a.m., will provide valuable information on how your company can take part in the state’s Subsidized Training and Employment (Step Up) programs, Small Business Express, tax incentives, tax credits and more, he said.
Even though the event is free, registration is required. For more information on participating and also being a sponsor, click this link: http://goo.gl/TyjCKT
