An introduction to business ownership succession planning will be offered on Thursday, May 16 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Howard Dean Education Center, 307 South Street in Springfield, Vermont. Led by Jeffrey Graham of Graham & Graham, P.C. and Don Jamison of the Vermont Employee Ownership Center, this free seminar will cover the four most common ownership exit paths: sale to an outside buyer, to family, to managers, and to the broader group of employees. The seminar is open to business owners and key managers and, while it is free, registration is required. For more information and to register, please follow thisĀ link.

Sponsors of the event are the Springfield Regional Development Corporation, the Vermont Small Business Development Center, the Vermont Manufacturing Extension Center and the Vermont Employee Ownership Center, with funding provided by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.
