A 2012 business workshop to foster growth of small, female and minority-owned business firms, hosted by the AVTA - Antelope Valley Transit Authority, is being held Thursday, Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Larry Chimbole Cultural Center in Palmdale.

The workshop’s theme is "Economic Growth: Empowering Businesses during a Climate of Recovery." The AVTA is working to develop stronger relationships with local business owners in the community who wish to connect with professionals in the transportation industry, said a spokesperson for the agency.

"Given the current economic state, it is critical we ensure that small local businesses have access to information regarding procurement opportunities that will position them to thrive during these challenging times," said AVTA executive director Julie Austin. "This year’s business workshop will also focus on strengthening our ties with the local business community."

The workshop is a great opportunity for local businesses to become familiar with the business needs and opportunities available throughout the region’s local civic agencies, said Dave Walter, Palmdale’s economic development manager.

The Larry Chimbole Cultural Center is located at 38350 Sierra Highway in Palmdale. More information is available at 661 945 9445.
