Spaces Still Available for UCMB Program: Maximizing Your Business with the Internet

Union County –Spaces are still available for Maximizing Your Business with the Internet a new Union County Means Business program. The event will take place on October 30th from 8:00-10:00 a.m. at Union County Performing Arts Center’s Hamilton Stage in Rahway.

“Ms. Dowdell was a featured speaker at our 1st annual Union County Women Mean Business Summit in June,” said Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter. “Her session on Social Networking was one of our most popular and demand for her return has been high.
