America's SBDC
Woman w/ monitor Join us online from the comfort of your office or home Woman and Man Connect through live events and access 100+ workshops


The COVID-19 pandemic has kept everyone from being able to connect with each other in ways they enjoy, and prevented them from celebrating events and milestones that are so incredibly important.
This virtual conference will give America’s SBDCs the opportunity to bring the nationwide network together to celebrate the amazing work that SBDCs have done, not just through the COVID-19 pandemic but throughout the past 40 years.

This year’s event will offer:

► 100+ on-demand, high-quality professional development workshops, accessible online for 6 months
► A live program that includes compelling speakers, special guests and giveaways
► Opportunities for SBDCs to come together to reconnect and celebrate the amazing work they do
► In light of the COVID pandemic, America’s SBDC has worked with our presenters to ensure that our course offerings are geared towards providing training that is focused on the new realities and uncertainties that SBDC advisers and their clients are facing. Each workshop has been adapted as much as possible to address these issues.
► The live portion of the conference will start at 1 PM ET and run to 4 PM ET on Tuesday & Wednesday, Sept. 29 & 30

(These workshops are available from September 29, 2020 through March 31, 2021)
