Small Business Workshop: “Should I Be a Business Entity?”

September 4, 2018
1:00 pm-4:00pm

Cullman Chamber of Commerce 301 2nd Ave SW, Cullman 35055

You and your brother are raising cattle on halves. Are you a business entity? By default, you are a general partnership. If your brother’s employee is hurt working the cattle, you are probably liable. If you are liable, the court could take not only business assets but also personal property. The Alabama Cooperative Extension System, in cooperation with the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce, is offering a program on business entities.  This program is designed for small businesses of all kinds including farming.

Check out the topics to be presented by viewing the Event Flyer and register using one of the following options listed below:

Cullman County 4-H Clubs

4-H is a learn-by-doing youth development program delivered throughout Alabama.  If you are a youth living in Alabama, 4-H has something for you!

October is the beginning of a new year in 4-H!  Jay Conway, 4-H Agent, and Raydonna Sims, Agent Assistant, have begun conducting 4-H club meetings with 4th & 5th graders in our local schools.

Participation in 4-H doesn’t have to end after 5th grade.  4-H is open to all youth ages 9-18 years of age regardless of where you live. Five to eight year olds can join as Cloverbuds to explore the variety of programs available in 4-H while having fun in a non-competitive environment. 4-H has so many amazing opportunities for youth!

You are invited to join us for the first Community Club meeting of the year at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at the Cullman County Extension Office, located at 402 Arnold Street NE Suite G-1, Cullman, AL 35055.  The Cullman County Community Club is comprised of former school club members who wish to continue membership past the 5th grade, students attending a school not offering 4-H, and homeschool students.

In addition to our Cullman County Community Club, there are several special interest clubs that meet at different times throughout the year.  For more information, contact our office at 256-737-9386 to speak with Jay or Raydonna about the different opportunities available or email Jay at conwajk@auburn.edu or Raydonna at rbs0005@auburn.edu.
