Valdosta - The Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce wants to keep Valdosta recession proof.

They say the economy is prospering, despite a nationwide economic slump.

But that could change at any moment.  Now, they want to offer a series of courses that will help businesses stay afloat and ease the pressure of an economic downturn.

"It's just a great opportunity to learn and soak up some information that will allow you to do a better job of planning for the future, not just in the down times but the good times as well," says Walter Hobgood, the Chamber's Board Chairman.

The chamber will be offering the courses throughout the month.  Those classes are:

"Proper Planning for Your Business." Participation from the City, County, VSU SBDC, SEEDS Center, etc. on resources they provide that help new businesses and small businesses throughout their early stages of development.

"Proper Financing for Your Business." 1. Bankers who can discuss financing options in the face of cash flow problems (during recessions businesses often face slower cash flow while overhead remains the same) 2. Accountants who can discuss tax strategies that will minimize tax burdens during a recession

"Smart Marketing For Your Business." 1. Marketing professionals who can discuss how positioning a company's product or the company itself to maximize potential market share opportunity can ease the burden of economic downturn 2. Smart marketing tips for any company to practice in the face of economic downturn

"Handling Labor Issues." Office staffing company managers that can discuss how to effectively manage fluctuations in labor needs and labor force opportunities that may be available during a period of economic slowdown

To find out more information, call the Chamber of Commerce at 229-247-8100.
