President and CEO of the Charles County Chamber of Commerce Bonnie Grady said, “The purpose of this virtual event, “Show Me the Money,” is to connect our business community to the financial resources available.

The webinar will feature speakers: College of Southern Maryland, Small Business Development Center Business Consultant Bill Hitte; Charles County Economic Development Department, Chief of Business Development Lucretia Freeman-Buster; and Lendistry, Director of Sales Clarence Campbell, EVP. These panelists are experts on small business resources available in the region. They will help small businesses identify the programs that are right for them and provide guidance on how to access and apply to these programs.

“It is still essential we continue to provide financial support to small businesses at this time,” says Economic Development Department Director Darréll Brown. “Helping our businesses remain open and prosperous as the State recovers is vital, and this webinar will help inform our businesses of their options.”
