Small businesses can learn in-depth details of California’s new four-tier system for reopening businesses, plus the latest on SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) forgiveness in this week’s free webinar hosted by the Small Business Development Center at CSU Bakersfield. 

Host and SBDC director, Kelly Bearden will provide updated guidance on the PPP forgiveness process. He will be joined by two special guests: Brynn Carrigan, assistant director for Kern County Public Health will discuss California’s color-coded framework for reopening and its effects on businesses.  Jay Tamsi, president and CEO of the Kern County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will talk about actions being taken in the COVID fight and what his small business membership is experiencing. Questions from attendees will be taken.
