Sunny San Diego will be home to the 2022 America’s SBDC Conference: “Synergy Energy,” Tuesday, September 6 through Friday, September 9. Annually, the conference brings together SBDCs, peers, partners and sponsors to discuss issues affecting small businesses. The theme of this year’s conference emphasizes the importance of collaboration through creating energized workplaces and synergistic teams. The shift in the society and the workplace caused by the global pandemic gave way to many organizations having to learn to increase efficiencies and adapt to new modalities. This year’s conference is an opportunity for SBDC professionals to come together to share best practices with peers in an effort to be stronger and more impactful in building America’s small businesses through lessons learned navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.
The schedule for the conference is available with a listing of the speakers for the Wednesday and Thursday General Sessions as well as a listing of the 175 professional development workshops. The 2022 America’s SBDC Conference registration is now open.
As the America’s SBDC conference returns to a live in-person event, be sure to stop by the SBDCNet booth and join our two workshops, scheduled for September 9th, to learn ways to energize your team and to create synergy with SBDCNet as your partner for client success.
