Small business owners in Maricopa County are invited to attend a free workshop in September to learn more about the city of Phoenix business certification programs and how they can provide opportunities for small business economic growth.

The next workshop will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at Goelet A.C. Beuf Community Center, classrooms 101 and 103, 3435 W. Pinnacle Peak Road.

The city's Equal Opportunity Department offers free monthly educational workshops to help business owners complete the application process for certification with the city as a small business enterprise.

Seating is limited for these presentations. To reserve a space, call the Phoenix Equal Opportunity Department at (602) 262-6790 or 602-534-1557/TTY, or email
