Come learn about local business in Catalina

IMPACT of Southern Arizona is hosting a Business Resource Fair to learn about local businesses and services on Saturday, October 18, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Coronado K-8 School. Similar to their Youth Day held each spring, the family-friendly event will include informational booths, food, music, entertainment and inflatables. Drop by and discover the business services available just outside your back door! Also participating is the Pima County Small Business Commission, who will hold their monthly meeting at the school prior to the fair from 9:00-10:00 a.m. The public is welcome to attend the meeting and meet the members.

The Pima County Small Business Commission is comprised of small business owners or managers who represent the business community throughout Pima County. The mission of the SBC is to be a “voice for small business” to county elected officials and staff.
