From page A9 | May 10, 2013 |

Sierra Vista Bank is joining the El Dorado County Office of Economic Development to help small business owners with a free seminar on the techniques and financial tools available to support, grow and strengthen their businesses. County economic development specialist Megan Arevalo issued the following in a prepared statement Monday.

The May 14 seminar at the county’s Government Center will teach small business owners methods to deal with everything from start-up to expansion to business acquisition.

And experts will explain the variety of lending programs and financing options available to small businesses, the tools they can use to protect and bolster their businesses, and even the risks to small businesses and how to manage them.

“We’ve been in this community a long time, and we know how hard our small businesses work to succeed,” said Sierra Vista Bank President and CEO Greg Patton. “We believe that any help we can give those businesses is good for them and it’s good for the entire region. We’re thrilled to be a part of something like this.”

Sierra Vista Bank and the county are reaching out to existing small business owners and to people considering starting a small business to encourage them to learn more about what’s available, including Small Business Administration loans and other financing, lines of credit, cash management techniques, and simple business efficiencies.

“We want people to know there is help out there,” Patton said.

The seminar runs 8 to 10 a.m. in the OES conference room at the County Government Center in Placerville at 330 Fair Lane, Building 8.

For more information, call 530-621-5595, or contact Megan Arevalo at 530-621-5147 or megan.arevalo@edcgov.us.
