Small business owners are invited to attend a free seminar on Legal Tips for Small Business on July 13 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

The session will be held at the RGV Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, located at 3313 N. McColl Road McAllen. Legal Tips for Small Business covers business structures, signing contracts, negotiating a lease, hiring employees, workplace safety and much more. This seminar will be presented by Attorney Amber Van Schuyver from Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid.

“Most small business owners have one objective in mind: to minimize risks while making good decisions that will result in profits and a successful business,” Business Outreach Specialist Alberto Espinoza said. “To effectively manage a business, however, the business owner needs to develop a first-rate business sense as well as a good legal sense. This seminar presents information necessary for that path towards success.”

Pre-registration is required to secure a seat. To register for this seminar, please contact the RGV Hispanic Chamber of Commerce at 956/928-0060.
