Laurel Ridge Community College will host their first ever Power Up Your Business conference in October.

We spoke with Christine Kriz the Director of Laurel Ridge Small Business Development Center about it in our latest news maker.

News makers are sponsored by Warren County Together We are Community.

Christine tells us that this is the biggest small business conference in the valley with speakers and breakout sessions to take advantage of.

She tells us that there will be a number of opportunities to network with those who own and operate their own business.

Christine also has an added incentive to get tickets for the event before October 1.
