Disaster Preparedness Workshop for small businesses coming soon….

The Bastrop Chamber of Commerce, Bastrop Economic Development Corporation, Texas State Small Business Development Center, the Smithville Chamber of Commerce and the Elgin Chamber of Commerce are proud to present the Disaster Preparedness Workshop for small businesses. “Unfortunately disasters can happen anywhere, anytime. They can be devastating to entire communities, families and business owners. It is important to be prepared,” said Bastrop Chamber of Commerce President Becki Womble. The half day workshop is set to place on Thursday, September 28th from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Bastrop Convention Center, 1408 Chestnut Street.

Bastrop County is no stranger to disasters. The better a small business is prepared for such an unfortunate event, the quicker they can get back to business. This workshop is designed to equip small business owners with everything their business needs in case of such a disaster. Business will leave the workshop with a draft emergency plan for their business. Participants will also hear a panel discussion featuring lessons learned from small business owners who have unfortunately experienced a disaster, and how you can quickly recover and get back to work.

The Disaster Preparedness Workshop is only $35 if you register prior to September 23rd.

The workshop will feature a keynote address presented by former County Judge Ronnie McDonald who is well versed in disaster preparedness. The event is open to attendees from all across the region. “We want small business owners to have the tools they need to be prepared in case of a disaster, unfortunately disasters are a reality in today’s world,” said Womble. “We hope everyone will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity so we can lessen the burden disasters have on our business community.”
