04/30/2003 - Working Together for Small Business

In the Inland Northwest, Small Business Month, “Working Together for Small Business,” is so successful that this year’s activities occur from April 22 to June 12. In other areas of the United States, there is only Small Business Week. Spokane's success is due primarily to the hard work of Coralie Myers and the SBA staff at the Business Information Center (BIC) in downtown Spokane.

Participating organizations and events of “Working Together for Small Business” are in the Tri-cities, Moses Lake, Spokane, Post Falls, Coeur d’Alene, Lewiston, and Weippe, Idaho. Small business owners can select from over 100 events designed to 'innovate, educate and celebrate'. Events include classes, seminars, workshops, receptions and even a Launch Pad event. Some have a fee; others are free. New events are being added almost daily. For a full list of events, go to,

The scholarship is intended to encourage and enable small business owners, partners, and employees to apply for and be successful candidates for Leadership Spokane.

The SBA encourages organizations to contact the Spokane BIC by e-mail at to have their activities listed. “Successful small businesses not only serve as the backbone of the economy, they anchor communities,” says Patricia Jordan, SBA Spokane. “We all benefit from small business growth. By helping current small businesses succeed, we pave the way for the entrepreneurs and small business owners of tomorrow.”
