The following is a press release from the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce.
In October 2012, the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce issued a five question survey that supplied a bounty of information. The top five concerns of businesses which responded were:
- Taxes and town regulations
- Networking with other businesses
- Marketing of their business
- Business development
- North Kingstown economic development
The Chamber of Commerce is responding to your concerns by holding two networking events per month and by developing a professional development/business development seminar series.
On Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 8 a.m. at the Chamber of Commerce Town Manager Mike Emburywill give a presentation on the re-evaluation process and the forecast for taxes in the coming year.
On Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 8 a.m. at the Chamber of Commerce CPA Scott Libman of Libman & Associates LTD will present on the new tax laws that will go into effect for 2013. Both of these workshops will be held at the Chamber of Commerce.
