The University of Mary Washington Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has hosted a program utilizing volunteer business professionals since May of 2011. Known as the Professional Services Center, it provided area business owners with an opportunity to get valuable information from a field expert. These professionals have donated their time to giving advice on procurement, financing, legal issues, real estate, and marketing. Professional Services volunteers were recognized recently at a “Program Future” event at the UMW Center for Economic Development. Brian Baker, CED executive director, remarked, “We are proud to recognize your generosity and contributions to the region’s small businesses. The giving of your knowledge helped many companies grow and prosper.” 242 area businesses benefited from the service from 2011-2015. Honorees included (pictured above) Terri Tosti (SONA Bank), Debby Girvan (Flair Communications), Lamont Brown (Infinex Investments), Geary Rogers (Compton and Duling), and Jamie Scully (Cushman & Wakefield-Thalhimer). The SBDC is hosted at the UMW Center for Economic Development .
