Vol State in the News

A timely topic put the Tennessee Small Business Development Center at Vol State in website and newspaper stories across the state this week. Charles Alexander is putting on a session with the Heritage Financial Group about the new health care law, probably best known as ObamaCare. The meeting will be held on Thursday at 3 p.m. in the Nichols Dining Room of the Wood Campus Center. And here's a thought...you may have friends or family considering starting a small business or trying to grow a small business.
