Columbia College has accomplished a lot in February. We have set the first two lectures in the series for INSIDE THE ENTREPRENEUR: ENLIGHTENING LESSONS.  Entrepreneurs from Calaveras and Tuolumne counties will be invited to Columbia College to share their experiences with live audiences to encourage the growth of entrepreneurial education and inspire start-up business ventures.  The dates for the lecture series this spring are April 20, 2009 (Monday) and May 18, 2009 (Monday).  The series will break during the summer months and resume in September 2009.

Columbia has gotten the CEO club off the ground and is the largest club on campus at this time with 16 members. Craig Johnston will be the facilitator for the lecture series. We have developed and met with an advisory committee consisting of members from both education and local businesses, in Tuolumne and Calaveras counties. It has been decided by the committee that each lecture will have a theme. Such as, restaurants, patents and inventions, hospitality, specialty services, green businesses, retail, entertainment and franchises. Members of the advisory committee are in the process of recommending local entrepreneurs for each of the themes.

We have developed the marketing plan for the lecture series and through the chamber of commerce for both counties we are receiving quite a bit of matched dollars and in kind publicity, on the local radio stations, school newspapers, local newspaper, chamber newsletters, and local public service television channels. This is very exciting in that we are receiving much more publicity than we would have ever been able to afford without this amazing amount of community support.
