As I asked at first, do you know this from legal precedence UKWP, or that's just how you read it? Obviously you THINK that's what it means, and I understood your view from the start. I'm not sure that is what it really means though. And your "read it till you understand" snark indicates you're just being arrogant and stubborn. You still refuse to answer my question. How do…

Oh my goodness, I believe it is up to the person whether they wear short or long sleeves based on what temperature is in the room. Some news outlets will do just about anything to stir up identity politics. With the many very difficult issues we have in this country, this one doesn't pass the "smell test".

Thanks for all of that but go back and read the phrase "lawfully in his possession" and keep reading it until you understand it. It's in the middle of your own post. The reason that phrase is in there is to distinguish between property that you can use force to protect: that which is "lawfully in his possession" and that which you cannot use force to protect: that which is not lawfully in his…

2nd annual entrepreneurial expo at Quincy Mall

1 year ago from GREDF

Event will be held Saturday, August 9th from 9:30am to 1:30pm in the Community Room

Several Quincy area organizations are coming together to host an informational event for current and aspiring entrepreneurs on Saturday, August 9th. The event will take place in the Quincy Mall Community Room beginning at 9:30am. The event is free and open to the public. 

“We wanted to provide a one-stop learning experience for entrepreneurs at any stage of the process,” said Kimm Minnick, property manager for the Quincy Mall. “We are working with our partners to create an action-packed agenda that includes presentations and time for specific questions.” 

The day will begin with a Small Business Development Center presentation outlining the steps to starting a business - including the importance of a business plan and cash management.  

At noon the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce (QACC) will announce the winner of the 2014 Business Plan Competition.  

Lunch will be provided by the Quincy Mall immediately following the QACC announcement. Participants will have an opportunity to network and ask questions during this time. Stations will be set up for specific topics in the areas of financing a small business, marketing and sales, legal and tax issues, and human resources.  

According to Charles Bell, director of the Quincy Entrepreneurship Center, planning the event has been a group effort. “When we initiated the event last year we wanted to get a number of organizations involved so current and prospective small business owners would have access to a wide network of local resources in one place,” Bell said. ”It was so well received we decided to improve the event and hold it a second year.” 

The Entrepreneurial Expo is being coordinated by GREDF in collaboration with the Small Business Development Center, Quincy Mall, Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce, John Wood Community College, Quincy University, The District, Illinois WorkNet Center and the Quincy Business and Technology Center. 

In addition to the presentations and small group discussions, packets of information will be available outlining where to go for further assistance, as well as information about local training opportunities and schedules of upcoming entrepreneurship events. 

There is no cost to attend, and no RSVP is required. Questions may be directed to Charles Bell at GREDF 217.223.4313 or charlesb@gredf.org, or any of the participating organizations.
